Can I buy Diapers or Baby Wipes with my SNAP benefits?

unemployed_questionA) Yes, you can buy diapers and baby wipes with your Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Under SNAP rules, certain non-food items are considered eligible food expenses, including diapers and baby wipes.

It’s important to note that SNAP benefits can only be used to purchase food items or plants and seeds to grow food. Non-food items, such as cleaning supplies, hygiene products, or paper goods, can only be purchased with SNAP benefits if they are used to prepare, serve, or eat food, or if they are required for a special diet or medical need.

Diapers and baby wipes are considered essential items for infants and young children, and are therefore allowed purchases with SNAP benefits. However, it’s always a good idea to check the USDA’s list of eligible and ineligible food items to be sure. Additionally, not all retailers accept SNAP benefits for non-food items, so it’s important to check with the retailer before attempting to make a purchase.
