I just wanted to vent a little about the change in WIC here in Florida. I just went this morning for my recertification appointment and found out that as of October this year, we will no longer be allowed to get any other milk than 1% or skim. When I was pregnant, my doctor had me go to 2% because I was having gall bladder issues. I didn't care for it at first but I got used to it. Apparently, there's just as much fat in 2% as there is in whole. So WIC is soon only going to allow us to get 1% or skim (YUCK) and I think that sucks big time. I think they should just inform us of the different fat contents and let US as parents decide. I understand that fat intake in children is an issue but we eat a pretty healthy diet with lots of fresh fruits and fresh veggies and very little meat other than white meat, fish and occasionally steak. To me, drinking 1% milk is like drinking 1% juice. Why would I want to do that? I cook with real butter, real sugar, whole eggs and whole milk....everything in moderation....and we're all healthy. Thanks for listening to me ramble...lol I needed to vent.
