Nutrition is so important for pregnant and nursing mothers, postpartum women, infants, and small children. It is during these life stages that access to healthy food is needed most. That is why CEO offers the WIC program. WIC offers nutrition education, breastfeeding support, and access to healthy food. WIC supports the health of pregnant and postpartum women, and their children up to the age of five. Fathers, stepparents, grandparents and foster parents may all apply for their children. The program distributes vouchers which can be used specifically for purchasing nutritious foods and formula from designated stores. WIC has been shown to improve the health of pregnant, postpartum, and nursing women, and their young children. The foods provided through WIC are a good source of important nutrients that are often missing from the diets of women and young children. WIC participants have longer, healthier pregnancies and fewer premature births.
