WIC is a nutrition program for Women, Infants, and Children. It is a program designed to provide nutrition information and nutritious foods to families. Eligibility for the program is based on income and also on nutritional needs. WIC serves pregnant, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants and children up to age five. It is designed to improve the diet of pregnant women during the critical times that the baby needs special food. Providing proper nutrition to unborn children and infants can make an important and lifelong difference in the health of that child. The program accomplishes its goals in two ways. First, the registered dietitians of the program review the family's eating habits and provide nutrition information based on individual need. Secondly, nutritious foods are made available. Families are provided assistance through WIC drafts that can be used at approved stores to purchase certain nutritious foods. Participants receive milk, cereal, juice, eggs, and peanut butter or dried peas and beans as well as whole grain foods and for fresh, frozen or canned fruit and vegetables. Infants receive iron-fortified formula and iron fortified infant cereal. Breastfeeding mothers who exclusively breastfeed, receive additional foods such as tuna or salmon, more milk and cheese.
