WIC is a health and nutrition program for growing families. WIC helps families by providing nutrition education, breastfeeding support, vouchers for healthy foods, and referrals to healthcare and other community services.
Choosing healthy foods while pregnant, learning how to breastfeed, and taking care of your and your family's nutrition is a big job. Find information on feeding your infant, child, and yourself here.
Keeping Your Child Safe From Lead
In response to the U.S. House of Representatives report titled “Baby Foods Are Tainted with Dangerous Levels of Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, and Mercury,” the California Department of Public Health Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch (CLPPB) has developed a new educational flyer on the topic of baby food safety, "Keeping Your Child Safe from Lead." Click here for more information.
Part of the nation’s nutrition safety net for over 50 years, WIC now serves more than 8 million pregnant and post-partum women, infants, and children in the US. For a family to participate, it must have a gross income of no more than 185 percent of the federal poverty level and be at nutritional risk. To simplify program administration, an applicant who already receives SNAP (formerly food stamps), Medicaid, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families cash assistance is automatically considered income-eligible.
Extensive research has found WIC to be a cost-effective investment that improves the nutrition and health of low-income families — leading to healthier infants, more nutritious diets, better health care for children, and subsequently higher academic achievement for students. As a result of the research documenting WIC’s effectiveness, Administrations and Congresses of both parties have provided sufficient funding since 1997 to ensure that WIC can serve all eligible low-income pregnant women, infants, and young children who apply for it.
WIC provides federally-funded temporary assistance for Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have recently had a baby and Infants and Children under five years of age.
To provide women, infants, and children with healthy food and the knowledge and opportunity to make healthy choices in an atmosphere of dignity and respect, thus enhancing the potential for all Californians to enjoy a higher quality of life.
