    In October 2009, WIC began offering a new food package based on the latest nutrition guidelines. This is the first major change to the WIC food package in about 30 years. The new package offers fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk and baby food in addition to cereal, eggs, juice, peanut butter and beans.
