Do Vitamin and Mineral Supplements Belong in WIC?
By National WIC Association
WIC is the nation’s premier public health nutrition program serving low-income women, infants, and children. Along with nutrition education, the WIC food package helps meet the specific nutritional needs of WIC participants through a tailored prescription of supplemental foods selected to provide key nutrients found lacking in the diets of the WIC population. The first priority in achieving good nutrition is consuming healthy food, like the ones offered in the WIC food package. Supplements cannot replace a healthy diet.
