WIC Food Benefits
WIC Provides Healthy Foods for Growth & Development
Suitable nutrition during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood is essential for the healthy growth and development of your child. In addition, establishing healthy eating habits and behaviors early in life is important.
WIC provides healthy food packages created to meet your specific nutritional needs -whether you are pregnant, postpartum, breastfeeding, or to meet the nutritional needs of your newborn, baby, or child.
Each person who is enrolled in the program will be assigned a food package. Based on that food package, you may receive benefits from WIC for yourself or your child to purchase specific foods such as: beans, whole grains, fruits & vegetables, 100% fruit juice, cheese, cereal, eggs, infant formula, canned fish, peanut butter, milk, infant ceral & baby food
WIC food benefits are provided monthly on a reusable California WIC Card.
You can meet with one of our nutrition experts to learn about the impact good nutrition has on your health and the health of your child. In a personal or group setting, they will also discuss healthy eating habits, how to cook healthy meals, and your personal nutrition goals.
