  • Revisions in the WIC Food Packages Final Rule

    The USDA “Revisions in the WIC Food Packages” final rule, published on March 4th, 2014, revises the interim rule published in 2007. The interim rule reflected recommendations made by the 2005 National Academies’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, “WIC Food Packages: Time for a Change.” The final rule addresses comments on the interim rule and clarifies certain provisions.
