WIC is a food supplement program designed to help pregnant women, breast-feeding moms, or women who recently gave birth, consume adequate nutrition. The program also covers infants under 12 months old, and children under 5 years old. If you qualify, you will receive checks to buy food. You will be given nutritional and health education - including personal nutrition counseling - to help you and your children eat well and stay healthy. You will also get support and help with breast-feeding, and referrals to other health programs for both you and your family. A Certified Breastfeeding Educator is available to answer all your breastfeeding questions.
