WIC is a supplemental nutrition program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, and young children eat well, learn about nutrition, and stay healthy. WIC provides health information and referrals; nutrition assessment and counseling; healthy foods for women, infants, and children; and breastfeeding counseling and training. Why is WIC important? We need a healthy generation of children who can be productive citizens when they get older. We need children who are free from infectious disease, chronic illnesses and obesity. A generation of healthy children would free our State from tremendous future health care costs. Fewer WIC babies are delivered prematurely. Prevention of premature delivery saves a great deal in public Medicaid dollars and prevents much human suffering.
