Benefits of the WIC Program

Studies have shown that women who participate in the WIC program have fewer premature births, higher birth weight infants, and fewer fetal and infant deaths. WIC provides nutritious foods containing high levels of iron, vitamin C, thiamin, niacin, calcium, and vitamin B6. These nutrients promote health, growth and development.
