WIC's goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women and children younger than age 5 healthy. To do this, WIC provides:
- Personalized nutrition consultation
- Breastfeeding information, support and referrals
- Free, healthy food
- Referrals for medical and dental care, health insurance, child care, housing, lactation support, and other services that can benefit the whole family
And that's not all! WIC also offers nutrition and health education on a variety of topics including meal planning, maintaining a healthy weight, picky eaters, caring for a new baby, working and breastfeeding, and shopping on a budget.
