The WIC Food Chain: How WIC Supports Farmers and Retailers

By National WIC Association

WIC provides a monthly food package of nutritious foods tailored to supplement the dietary needs of participants to ensure good health, growth and development. The foods are specifically chosen to provide supplemental nutrition consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and established dietary recommendations for infants and children under 2 years of age. The selected foods also reinforce WIC nutrition education messages, address emerging public health nutrition-related issues, and provide wide appeal to the diverse WIC population.
