Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) Program

Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) Program

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children or WIC Program is authorized under the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 and is codified under Title 7, Part 246 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). It serves as an adjunct to health care for pregnant, post-partum and breastfeeding women and children from birth to 4 years of age who are determined to be at nutritional risk by providing specific nutritious foods, nutrition education and serving as gateway to refer at-risk clients to other health services such as primary care and immunizations.
