How does WIC impact families?
Women on WIC eat better, have healthier babies and receive earlier prenatal care. This helps produce positive prenatal and birth outcomes.
Infants born to WIC mothers weigh more and are more likely to achieve their growth and developmental milestones.
Children on WIC eat foods with more iron and vitamin C, helping them to develop strong minds and bodies. They have better access to community resources, are more likely to have regular medical care and are more likely to receive their immunization.
