Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program participants receive nutrition education, supplemental foods, breastfeeding promotion/support, and referrals to community and health agencies to improve their diets and reduce their chances of health problems caused by poor nutrition.

All women are encouraged to provide their infant with the best nutrition possible by breastfeeding.

Additional breastfeeding education and support is provided by the WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselors before and after delivery.
