Women, Infants and Children

The WIC food packages provide supplemental foods designed to meet the special nutritional needs of low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, non-breastfeeding postpartum women, infants and children up to five years of age who are at nutritional risk. Midwest Dairy Council supports the nutritionists in the WIC program with nutrition education materials for clients and education programs. These resources are perfect for use in local WIC offices.
