I'm a wic praticapant... have with my last two kids and am on the program now. You recive 8 cans of tuna a month while nursing.... and it usally takes a year or more to get anything changed on the program... I'm very worried since i will be nursing on the program for 1 year (that's all they suport nursing for) then my child will get the food program and recive ceral, milk, juice, peanut butter, ect.
When i was watching CNN when it first came out about tuna they also said in adition to tuna pregnant, nursing moms, young children, and those TTC should alos limit the amount of frozen fish of all kinds (including fish sticks, patties, ect) to 1 per week... this inclueds fast food fish. And fish such as sord fish and shark should NEVER be eaten durring this time. I have started to buy the light tuna but not cut it out of my diet. Me and my dh are on a very very tight bugdet and tuna is a chep option for us so i will not cut it out all together (no point... just limit intake). My kids are also fans of breaded fish sticks, ect so i just limit how often i make them to maybe 1-2 times a month. Though i would add this in!!!
