About WIC

Everybody wants to provide the best, healthiest start for their newborn baby. But the amount of information online and food choices available can be overwhelming. How is a new caregiver supposed to know what foods are best to fuel a baby’s growing body and brain?

That’s where WIC comes in. WIC is a program developed by the US Department of Agriculture to provide highly-nutritious foods and support to pregnant and recently pregnant individuals, as well as children from birth through age 5. WIC-approved foods are specially selected because they contain vital nutrients growing children need.

WIC starts before your baby is born, with healthy foods, nutrition education, and breastfeeding support. WIC foods have been shown to boost brain development, help enhance concentration, and build strong muscles so children are ready to learn and succeed when they start preschool—and new caregivers can feel confident in the choices they make for their children.
