What is the Kentucky WIC Program?
If you are pregnant, recently had a baby, are breastfeeding, or have a child younger than 5 years of age, the Special Nutrition Program for Women Infants and Children (WIC) could help you.
The WIC Program is a short-term intervention program designed to influence lifetime nutrition and health behavior in high risk populations.
WIC provides nutrition education and services; breastfeeding promotion and education; a monthly food prescription of nutritious foods; and access to maternal, prenatal and pediatric health care services.
WIC improves birth outcomes while also providing savings in health care costs. It also improves diet and immunization rates among infants. It provides a regular source of medical care and improves cognitive development and preconception nutritional status. WIC also reduces fetal deaths and infant mortality/low birth rates. For more information on being placed on the WIC program call 270-527-1496!
