Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a nutrition and health care program for low-income pregnant women, new mothers, infants, and children. Through WIC, women and children receive food packages to promote a nutritious diet and improve development. Recent changes provide a wider range of fruits, vegetables and whole grains as well as allowing certain substitutions such as rice, tortillas, tofu and a greater selection of beans. Wome
