The White House is stepping up its response to address the nationwide shortage of baby formula.

President Biden met with executives from baby food manufacturers Gerber and Reckitt, as well as retailers Target and Walmart on how to address the shortage.

The administration says it will monitor price gouging, work with international sellers to import formula and make it easier for WIC recipients to buy formula their current benefits may not currently cover.

The shortage has caused parents to wonder what can be done to feed their babies in the meantime.

Jennifer spoke to Christine McDaniel, a former official with the U.S. Department of Commerce and current Senior Research Fellow with the Mercatus Center about the issue this morning.
