LET WIC WORK FOR YOU

WHAT IS WIC AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

WIC is a special nutrition program for Women, Infants, and Children. WIC provides you and your children with some of the foods your body needs to be healthy. WIC foods are meant to be used along with the other foods you usually buy. WIC provides nutrition education to help you and your family eat better and save money on food. Nutrition education is available to you when you pick up your checks. You may also see videos, get literature, go to a nutrition class or speak individually with the nutritionist to learn about nutrition and health, or go to a breastfeeding support class. WIC promotes breastfeeding as the best way to feed babies. WIC helps you get into other health and social service programs that you or your children may need.

************

ADDITIONAL WIC SUPPORT

WIC works closely with the health care community, receiving referrals from private and public health care providers. WIC provides referrals as needed, for health and social services, including immunizations WIC staffs routinely coordinate with other programs such as Healthy Start and Kidcare. All WIC agencies have trained personnel who are able to assist mothers in making informed decisions about their infant feeding choices and instructing them in the basics of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding promotion and support is an integral part of the WIC program. Many WIC agencies have excellent breastfeeding peer counselor support programs that provide mother-to-mother counseling. In addition, WIC may provide breastfeeding aids such as breast pumps.

*************

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING WITH YOU TO THE WIC OFFICE

When you come to your WIC certification visit, make sure you bring each woman, infant, and child applying for WIC. In addition, you will need to be sure to have with you: proof of all income for everyone in the household (gross income), one proof of where you live, one proof of identification, social security and or crib cards, and if available the immunization (shots) record for children.
