WIC (Women, Infants & Children) is a national nutrition education program that promotes healthy eating. Clients get nutrition advice, help with breastfeeding, referrals to other community services. They also get special checks to buy healthy food items such as fruits and vegetables, milk, cheese, whole grains, cereals, pure juice, and eggs.
