Foods for Infants (Birth – 12 Months)
The WIC Program strongly encourages and provides support for breastfeeding. For babies who are not fully breastfed, iron-fortified infant formula is available for the first year of life. The state contracts with one formula company to provide formula at a reduced price. At six months of age, infants may also receive infant cereal and infant fruits and vegetables. Infants that are fully breastfed may also receive infant meats.
Foods for Women and Children (under 5 years of age)
Pregnant or postpartum women whose children participate in WIC receive food benefits such as: milk, cheese, eggs, cereal, peanut butter, dried beans/peas or canned beans/peas, fruit and vegetable juices, fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grain choices, including breads, tortillas, brown rice, and oatmeal. Women who exclusively breastfeed their babies may also receive extra food, including canned fish.
(Note: WIC foods are selected to meet nutrient needs such as calcium, iron, folic acid, vitamins A & C)
