WIC is a nutrition program for low to moderate income women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or who have recently been pregnant, infants and children under the age of 5 years. WIC provides the following services:
- Healthy foods
- Nutrition education and counseling
- Breastfeeding support
- Referrals to health care, immunizations and community services
The WIC program provides Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards for free food to use at local grocery stores. Grocery shopping is smart and easy with the WIC EBT card, and you can choose how little or how much you want to buy each time you shop with your WIC EBT card. WIC food packages typically include:
- Low fat milk
- Whole grains
- Peanut butter
- Fruits and vegetables
- Low-Fat yogurt
Additionally, WIC food packages promote and support the establishment of successful and long-term breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is the best choice for baby, however, when breastfeeding does not prove to be the best choice for Mom, infant formula can be provided. The formulas that WIC currently provides include:
- Enfamil Infant
- Enfamil Gentlease
- Enfamil AR
- Enfamil Reguline
- Gerber Soy
