WIC approved foods are good sources of important nutrients. No single food supplies all the nutrients you need, so eat a variety of different foods every day to stay healthy.
WIC Food Packages provide a variety of foods but not everything you need. Adding your WIC foods to foods you usually eat will help you have a healthier diet. The food package you receive depends upon whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and the age of your child.
Some of the foods you may receive:
Pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, and children one to five years of age may receive:
Skim, 0%, 1/2%, or 1% Milk
Vitamin C rich juice
Dry beans, peas, or peanut butter
Tuna (as applicable)
Pink salmon (as applicable)
Fresh fruits and vegetables
100% whole wheat bread
Whole Wheat Pasta
Infants may receive:
Special breastfeeding support or infant formula for the first year
