Walmart’s Parent’s Choice Infant Formula: 2 Cans for $10

For all mommies and mommies-to-be out there like me, this is a deal that we should never miss. Walmart is offering special cans of a store brand formula, Parent’s Choice Infant Formula, on sale. I told my husband about it and he seemed interested too. I can't wait to let my friends know too. Store-brand formulas, which are labeled with the names of retail-store brands, are as nutritionally equivalent to name-brand formulas. It will be my safe alternative if in case I ran out of breast milk. I am not sure yet if I have enough breast milk for my little one soon so it would be best to be prepared. Available exclusively at Walmart, special cans of the store brand For a limited time, Parent’s Choice Infant Formula is available as a special buy: parents can buy two cans for just $10!

· Parent’s Choice Milk Infant Formula is on sale in a 15.5 oz (440 gram) can for $5.00 each.
· Parent’s Choice Gentle Infant Formula for babies with fussiness or gas is on sale in a special 12.9 oz (366 gram) can for $5.00 each. For more information, you can visit their website.

All infant formulas marketed in the United States are subject to the same exacting standards of the FDA, pursuant to the Infant Formula Act of 1980 and the subsequent LSRO report commissioned by FDA in 1998. This legislation vested FDA with the authority to ensure that all infant formulas sold in the United States meet minimum and maximum nutrient specifications.

This information is now more important than ever for many mothers because of changes in the Women, Infants and Children program. A friend of mine informed me about the changes they made. As of October 1, 2009, a new WIC initiative aimed at increasing breastfeeding rates among families reallocates funding for all currently provided foods, including infant formula, baby foods, juices, and fresh fruits and vegetables. This program could mean a reduction of up to 20 percent in infant-formula subsidies; parents who previously had most of their formula paid for by WIC may now have to purchase formula on their own. This would be our chance to buy infant formulas in lesser price. So inform other mommies out there and don't miss this chance to be able to save for our little ones.
