If you are pregnant, have just had a baby, are breastfeeding, or have a child under the age of five, and you meet the income guidelines, you might be eligible for the Women, Infants, and Children program (commonly referred to as WIC). Families with children under five who were previously on Healthy Families and now have Medi-Cal may be eligible for WIC. WIC is designed to help pregnant women, new mothers, and young children eat well and stay healthy. WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and referrals to health care and social services. WIC also provides special checks that can be used to buy nutritious foods at many local stores. Online nutrition education is also available. The foods provided through WIC are good sources for essential nutrients. Participation in the WIC program can improve your family’s health and help you make healthy lifestyle changes.
