Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC)


What is WIC?


WIC is a health and nutrition program for women, infants, and children. WIC helps families buy healthy foods. It also is a source for nutrition education, breastfeeding support and education, and for help finding healthcare and other community services.


What does WIC provide?


Nutritious Foods - WIC foods are good sources of important nutrients. No single food gives you all the nutrients you need to stay healthy, so eat many different foods every day.


Nutrition Education - At each clinic visit, you will have an opportunity to learn about nutrition.


Breastfeeding Promotion

and Support - WIC encourages all women to breastfeed. It is the best food for babies. If a baby is not breastfed, some formula may be provided by WIC. Help with breastfeeding is available for moms who need it. WIC can also furnish a breast pump if needed.
