Baby Formula Education

According to a study published earlier this year in Clinical Pediatrics*, two-thirds of families in the federal Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) run out of WIC-supplied baby formula toward the end of most months. Among these families, 27 percent reported “formula-stretching” – watering down infant formula or reducing feedings – which can have serious health and developmental consequences for babies.
