What is WIC
WIC (Women, Infants & Children) is a nutrition education program for pregnant women, women who have a baby less than six months old, breastfeeding mothers, and infants and children up to 5 years old. WIC provides individualized nutrition counseling, nutritious foods, help in finding health care, breastfeeding support and education, voter registration, and farmer’s market coupons for fresh fruits and vegetables during the summer months.
WIC also provides nutrition classes on topics like infant feeding, breastfeeding, story time with snacks, and special holiday-themed events. For breastfeeding moms returning to work or school, WIC may provide electric breast pumps. The mission of the WIC program is to improve the health status and prevent health problems among Ohio’s at-risk women, infants, and children.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider. WIC is federally-funded by the USDA and is administered locally by Richland Public Health.
