WIC is a USDA Food and Nutrition Service that is federally funded and provides supplemental nutritious foods, referrals to health and social services, nutrition education, and breastfeeding education and support.
Women and children receive benefits for the purchase of nutritious foods including milk, eggs, cheese, cereal, juice, beans, peanut butter, whole grain bread, rice, pasta or tortillas, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables.
Infants receive benefits for the purchase of infant cereal, baby fruits and vegetables and infant formula if not breastfed.
Foods must meet strict nutritional standards based on current research to be included in the WIC food package. These foods contain many important vitamins and nutrients like iron, calcium, protein, vitamin C and fiber.
