Food vouchers add fruit and vegetables, cut milk

“Fruits, vegetables and whole grains will be added to the grocery list of items covered by the U.S. government’s Women, Infants and Children program, which provides vouchers and food checks to more than 8 million Americans, the Agriculture Department said on Monday. The proposed changes, the WIC program’s first major overhaul since it was implemented in 1974, will now include these items while paying less for milk, eggs and juice.”
