VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) ("Else" or the "Company"), is delighted to announce that its Kids Nutritional Shakes and Plant-Based Complete Nutrition for Toddlers have been approved by the Oklahoma Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program. This authorization comes on the heels of the Company's recent achievements of product approvals in Arizona and under US federal insurance billing, reflecting the continued execution of its strategic vision to broaden the accessibility of plant-based nutrition products across the United States.

Children with specific medical conditions and a physician’s prescription in Oklahoma can take advantage of Else's holistic plant-based nutrition solutions.

Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO and Co-Founder of Else, states, “Our recent addition to the Oklahoma WIC program, following on the heels of our success in Arizona and recognition by federal insurance billing, is another steppingstone in our mission to reshape access to plant-based nutrition. Our dedicated team at Else is deeply committed to bringing these innovative, plant-based nutritional alternatives to families across the nation. With this recent approval, we've reached yet another community of children who can benefit from our products, and we're excited about the prospect of reaching even more families as we anticipate further WIC approvals in the future."

Else Nutrition's Kids Shakes and Complete Nutrition for Toddlers are carefully crafted with clean, whole-plant ingredients: buckwheat, almond butter, and tapioca. USDA organic, free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn syrup, and GMOs, and void of most common allergens, these products offer families dealing with dietary concerns a comprehensive nutrition solution.

The recent inclusion of Else Nutrition's Kids Shakes and Toddler Complete Nutrition products in the Oklahoma WIC program further expands the company's market footprint, reinforcing its commitment to addressing the nutritional needs of children across the country.
