Better nutrition for a healthy start

WIC is for pregnant women, infants, children under age 5, and postpartum women for 6 months after birth and up to 1 year if they are breastfeeding. WIC provides nutrition education, nutritious foods, breastfeeding support, and referrals to other services free of charge to those who qualify.

Families receiving Medicaid, TANF, or SNAP already meet income eligibility requirements. Children in foster care under age 5 are automatically eligible for WIC.
