The Women, Infants, and Children Nutrition Program
WIC is a place where families, like yours, get healthy food and a lot more. WIC is for pregnant women, new and breastfeeding moms, and children under 5. WIC made a difference for over 304,000 women, infants and children in Washington in 2014. Almost half of all babies in our state are on WIC.
WIC helps improve the health of mothers and children through:
- Nutrition education
