Jalen, Age 5

My state gives us formula covered which is the biggest blessing but my daughter is just now getting ready to start foods. I am a stay-at-home mom because I’m worried someone will feed her the wrong things. We are scared of how costly things are going to be. My daughter deserves a life where we can give her things she wants but instead it looks like most of our money will go towards her nutrition. I’m not sure how I will be able to explain to her that she can’t have toys because we have to buy her specialty foods. This act would allow my child to live a better and almost “normal” life.
