The WIC program is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children. WIC provides nutrition education and supplemental foods for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, and infants and children from birth up to the age of five.
Breastfeeding instruction and support are strong components of the WIC program. Sullivan County WIC staff provide information to assist mothers in making informed decisions about infant feeding choices.
WIC plays an important role in improving birth outcomes and lowering healthcare costs. WIC improves infant feeding practices by promoting breastfeeding and also improves dietary intake of children 1-5. All WIC services are free to those who are eligible!
