Well, all I can say is that beans, bread, and cereal beat starvation. I'm not sure how poor one has to be to qualify for WIC but presumably since they need assistance to get food to begin with they are in dire enough straights that it is almost 'anything is better than nothing.' That said, I do agree that it is sad. Food stamps do not have the same restrictions (as far as I know) so this seems to be more government CW at work - beans and bread are good for kids so you can only get X,Y,Z.
Edit based on erickael's post above - yay, I am glad it is not all nonsense.
