“The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) offers nutrition education, breastfeeding support, referrals, and various nutritious foods to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, or postpartum women, infants, and children up to age five to promote and support good health.
WIC improves the health of pregnant women, new mothers, and their infants and children. The foods provided through WIC are a good source of nutrients often missing from the diets of women and young children. WIC participants have longer, healthier pregnancies and fewer premature births.”
