Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutrition
The WIC Nutrition Program provides nutrition screening, education, and food instruments for pregnant and postpartum women, infants, and children up to five years of age who are income eligible and who have nutritional risk factors. An appointment is required for the initial assessment, which includes height/weight screening and hemoglobin check.
Pregnant women and children one to five years old may get milk, eggs, cheese, juice, cereal, fresh fruit or vegetables, dried beans and peas or peanut butter, whole wheat and whole grain bread or brown rice or corn/wheat tortillas. Women breastfeeding only may get all these foods and maybe canned tuna fish and salmon. Breastfeeding supplies are available, such as manual breast pumps and nursing pads. Infants may get infant formula if not totally breastfed, infant cereal and stage two baby fruits or vegetables.
