Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a federally-funded program that serves low and moderate income pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, infants, and children up to age 5 who have a nutrition-related health problem.
Pregnant and postpartum women and children (under 5 years of age) participating in WIC receive food benefits for milk, cheese, eggs, cereals, peanut butter or dried beans or peas, and fruit or vegetable juices, fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads and tortillas. Women who exclusively breastfeed their babies may also receive extra food, including canned tuna fish.
Special formulas or nutritional supplements are also available to participating women and children who have certain medical conditions.
