WIC stands for Women, Infants and Children. It is a nutritional supplement program to help families to be able to provide healthy food for pregnant moms and their preschoolers. Here is the link for income guidelines which may be higher than you think, depending on family size. If you qualify you receive extra nutritional guidance and vouchers for products such as healthy cereals, whole grain breads, produce, dairy, proteins such as beans, etc. This is a federal program designed to help families thrive, even during tough economic situations when many more families may benefit from this service. You can schedule an appointment at your local clinic.

WIC is dedicated to helping women breastfeed their infants for as long as possible. For breastfeeding moms, extra food items are offered to help them provide the best for their babies. There are dieticians and breastfeeding experts available to help and in some cases, when the mothers need to return to work or have special needs, they can assist with breast pumps. This is a great program, worth checking into. Best Blogger Tips
