Program Description:

WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children.  WIC helps income eligible pregnant and breastfeeding women, women who recently had a baby , infants and children up to five years of age who are at health risk due to inadequate nutrition.  The program improves pregnancy outcomes by providing or referring to support services necessary for full-term pregnancies; reduces infant mortality by reducing the incidence of low birth weight (infants under 5 1/2 pounds are at greater risk of breathing problems, brain injuries and physical abnormalities) and provides infants and children with a healthy start in life by improving poor or inadequate diets.

WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding, education and support; supplemental, highly nutritious foods such as cereal, eggs, milk, whole grain foods, fruit and vegetables, and iron-fortified infant formula; referral to prenatal and pediatric health care and other maternal and child health and human service programs (examples: Head Start, Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as Food Stamps).
