What is WIC?

WIC is a supplemental nutrition program for pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants, and children (WIC) under 5 years of age. WIC provides healthy foods at the right time to promote good growth and development.

Why get WIC for your family?

  • Women on WIC eat a healthier diet, have healthier babies and receive early prenatal care.
  • Infants born to WIC mothers weigh more and have improved growth and development rates.
  • Children on WIC eat foods with more iron and vitamin C, and visit their doctors regularly.
