okay so DD is stopped up and what not. she isn't wanting to eat her purees. (normal eats like a pig). i'm hoping it's just because she's sick. she'll eat just about everything else though.



we have A LOT of purees from WIC. if when she gets better, she still refuses to eat them, what should i do with them? i kinda want to take them to the shelter, give them to someone i know who needs them, but do i HAVE TO take them to WIC or something?

give them to someone who needs them and tell WIC to not give you anymore if your not using them... exact thing happened to me

we still need help with the formula though...will they give us the formula ones still?

I would ask WIC. I was NOT allowed to sell/give away WIC food or I could get my WIC taken away and I'd have to back pay.



Chances are low you could get caught but I couldn't afford to risk it. I gave my purees back to WIC and I assume THEY gave it away.

I always thought as long as you didn't sell or try to make money off of it, it was okay to give it to like shelters and stuff? But I could be wrong.

I just gave my stuff away, all the purees and formula I had left, I gave it to my friends that needed it. I wasnt going to sell it, I didnt need it and i wasnt going to throw it away. They took it, used it and all is well.

Wic doesnt care that much, at least around here. If i walked into WIC with a bag of unused stuff they would probably look at me like "WTF does she want ME to do with it?"

I would take them back to WIC because they keep them there in case someone who doesn't have any and has no WIC left they can come in a get some. so it still helps people out.

i considered selling it but couldn't do it, wouldn't be right to get free food then make money off it (though it'd go to like formula or diapers of course). i just know some that are struggling and either can't/don't have WIC...

You can still get the.formula, just dont use the other checks. And giving is ok, just not selling. You.could ask wic if theres anyone who needs extra, since they only give out a limited amount.

I think every state is different maybe? There was signs in the office that you weren't allowed to give it away, you had to bring it back.



Like I said, ask. Some DON'T want it back but some will take your WIC away if you get caught giving it away. Probably won't get caught but not worth the risk if you NEED wic.

like i said, we NEED the formula but she seems to be loosing interest in the purees. she'd rather eat off our plate.

I understand what you're saying. You can ask for them to be taken off the check and keep the formula.



Some states let you get just what you want on the check, ours doesn't, we had to get everything regardless if we'd use it or not (which often time sucked hardcore... the main reason I just stopped getting it). So if you can pick and choose, just don't get the purees until you can get the check changed.
