Proposed rule. Vol. 71, No. 151. This proposed rule would revise regulations governing the WIC food packages to align the WIC food packages with the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and current infant feeding practice guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics, better promote and support the establishment of successful long-term breastfeeding,
provide WIC participants with a wider variety of food, provide WIC State agencies with greater flexibility in
prescribing food packages to accommodate participants with cultural food preferences, and serve participants
with certain qualifying conditions under one food package to facilitate efficient management of medically fragile participants.
