ANCHORAGE (AP) — Clients of a supplemental food program for women and children will have to start buying the least expensive brands for some foods, Alaska health officials said Thursday.

The change in the federally funded Alaska Women, Infants and Children program is a result of rising food costs nationally, officials said.

Beginning today, clients will have to buy the lowest priced brands available for each type of milk or cheese listed on the approved program list.

Some clients also might have reduced milk or juice food packages.
