Ready-to-Feed or Pre-Prepared Formulas
The USDA Food and Nutrition Service determined that all WIC formulas must be issued in powder or concentrated liquid forms unless:
- The participant's household has unsanitary or restricted water supply or poor refrigeration.
- The person caring for the infant is unable to correctly dilute the concentrated or powder form.
- The formula is only available in ready-to-feed form.
Forspecial medical /prescription formulas only, RTF may also be used if:
- It better accommodates the infant or child's condition.
- It improves the likelihood that the infant/child will consume the formula.
Pre-prepared added starch formulas can be made available for infants with severe gastroesophageal reflux through Maine WIC in the special situation where a child's caregiver is unable to correctly mix and thicken the formula with cereal.
