What is WIC?
About the WIC program
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a food and nutrition education program for families who are pregnant and have children up to the age of 5. We help our families eat well, learn about nutrition, and stay healthy. Each family receives targeted nutrition counseling and help with setting goals to build and maintain healthy habits.
What to expect from a WIC appointment
During each WIC appointment, you will talk with a nutritionist about your health and nutrition goals. We offer a safe and supportive environment where you can discuss topics like:
healthy weight gain during pregnancy
healthy diet throughout pregnancy
reaching your baby feeding goals
starting baby foods
helping children maintain healthy weight
helping children develop healthy lifestyle habits
assessing anemia status in women and children
