The infant formula shortage is a current national public health concern. Many guardians of formula-fed infants are struggling to find appropriate nutrition for their babies. Families of low socioeconomic status are being disproportionately affected because many of them rely on the Women, Infants, and Children program (WIC) to obtain formula, and their formula options through this program are limited. This project aims to provide Vermont families who have formula-fed infants with education and resources to navigate the formula shortage and keep their children healthy and fed.
