"Building healthy nations for the future."
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, commonly known as the WIC program, serves to safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children younger than 5 who are at nutrition risk. WIC provides supplemental food, nutrition education, and referrals to health care and other social services to low-income, nutritionally at-risk women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.
Who can participate in the WIC Program?
WIC is for low-income pregnant and post-partum women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.
