If you are pregnant, recently had a baby, are breastfeeding or have a child younger than 5 years of age, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) could help you.

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a short-term intervention program designed to influence lifetime nutrition and health behavior in high-risk populations. WIC is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture.

WIC provides:

  • Nutrition education and services;
  • Breastfeeding promotion and education;
  • A monthly food prescription of nutritious foods; and
  • Access to maternal, prenatal and pediatric health-care services.
