Important Formula Information

Due to formula shortages, Florida WIC agencies have been authorized to allow more flexibility to WIC participants who are unable to find their assigned infant formula. There is a list of temporary powder formula options allowed for purchase with EBT cards.

Formula Shopping Tips

  • Since these changes are only temporary, purchase the infant formula you usually buy when possible.
  • Buy only one to two cans if you are trying a new formula to make sure your baby doesn't have any issues before buying more.
  • Contact your pediatrician if you have any concerns about your baby's health.
  • Use the Florida WIC app to verify if formulas are covered.

Formula Don'ts

  • Don't try to make formula at home.
  • Don't water down formula.
  • Don't use formula past the expiration date.
