I don't buy all foods. Most people have foods they don't buy for many reasons like⁠
- health⁠
- medical⁠
- cost⁠
- accessibility ⁠
- ethics⁠
- culture & religion⁠
- taste preferences⁠

You don't have to say "yes" to all foods. You don't have to bring all foods into your home. I do caution against calling those foods "bad" though. There are so many kids out there telling their friends the food their friend is eating is bad. Not helpful. Additionally, if you call foods bad you are also setting up a “good food/bad food" category system in their brain. This a contribute to a complicated relationship with food in some people. ⁠

Baby's will sometimes cry for 6 to 8 hours a day and that can still be considered normal. Although, sometimes, baby will cry no matter what, you can always try the four S's to try to help soothe baby.
1. Swaddle baby to see if that helps them feel more secure and comfortable
2. Suck: give baby a pacifier or maybe baby needs to be fed.
3. Sway baby back and forth in your arms
4. Speak softly to baby with a "Shhhh" sound

Check the size!

When shopping for WIC-approved food items, the size of the container is important. For example, when the WIC Approved Food List states a half gallon (64 oz.) container of lactose-free milk is allowed, you won’t be able to use benefits to purchase a 52 oz. container of lactose-free milk.

Unsure of the size allowed? The WIC Approved Food List is located at https://health.mo.gov/living/families/wic/wicretailer/foodlist/ and on the WICShopper app.

Frozen veggies are not a compromise. 🤷‍♀️ ⁠

Sometimes picky eaters like the soft texture of cooked frozen veggies. Serving with some butter or oil can help too! ⁠

Our kids are listening and they are reading into the meaning behind what we're saying - more than we think! SHARE this post if you want to spread the word that we don't need to be using unhelpful language about foods in front of our kids. ⁠

You can't control what everyone else says, but you can control what you say when your child is around...even when you think they aren't listening. ⁠

Great team!!!
