Being a mom is so busy these days, running from here to there. And somehow, we still need to manage to complete weekly tasks like making it to the grocery store to pick up food for the family. Do you ever feel that it’s not always easy to find the WIC approved foods that you are looking for on the shelves?

Is your local grocery store using WIC shelf tags? If not, let us know by clicking on the ‘comment’ link below and we’ll send them a supply of shelf tags.
