WIC Formula Calculator

 
WIC Works App Mobile app version now available for iPhone and Android.

The WIC Infant Formula Calculator is a Web-based tool developed to help WIC State Agencies determine infant formula issuance amounts consistent with WIC regulations. The calculator can be used to determine the issuance of one infant formula product at a time.

How to use the WIC Infant Formula Calculator:

  • Step One: Enter the product’s name.
  • Step Two: Select the product’s physical form (i.e. powder, liquid concentrate or ready-to-feed).
  • Step Three: Type in the container size (ounces).
  • Step Four: Type in the reconstituted fluid ounce yield of the container or packaging with multiple containers (e.g. for a multipack of 4-8 fl oz bottles packaging provides 32 fl oz, enter 32).*
  • Step Five: Select the method of issuance (i.e.
    * Round-up methodology
    * Maximum monthly allowance or
    * Round-up and Maximum monthly allowance).
  • Step Six: Submit your product information by selecting the "calculate" button at the bottom of the page.

The calculator will provide you with instantaneous results that reflect the number of containers of that product to issue per infant feeding category (i.e. partially breastfed or fully formula fed) and food package timeframe (ex. 0-3 months, 4-5 months, etc.). You may also use the "printer-friendly" button on the results page to receive a printer-friendly version of your results. It is important to remember, the calculator will only provide correct amounts if the user enters accurate information – please double check your entries to ensure accurate results.

If you are having difficulties with the calculator please contact us at wicworks@ars.usda.gov.

*Of note: If you are entering the reconstituted fluid ounce yield of packaging, the calculator results page will indicate the total number of containers to issue for a specific period.  In this case, “container” refers to the packaging unit size you entered in this input field (e.g. for a multipack of 4-8 fl oz bottles packaging provides 32 fl oz, “container” refers to the entire multipack).
