If I came off too standoffish I apologize. It just hit me that if the parents are too poor to feed these for school, then most likely they were too poor to feed them as toddlers which imo would lead to serious conditions. I can't imagine what these little kids have go to through as toddlers with the lack of food.
However as many programs out there a single woman with a minor newborn has "priority 1" among WiC applicants (that is if assuming the "funding is available") and Temporary Cash Assistance. Unfortunately many are ignorant of these programs.
