WIC’s Fruit and Vegetable Bump: Building the Foundation for Healthier Children

By National WIC Association

Since spring 2021, WIC has enhanced monthly fruit and vegetable benefits for nearly 5 million young children and women. This science-based increase, sustained in fiscal year 2022 and 2023 appropriations, increases access to nutritious foods and builds on WIC’s strong record of improving children’s dietary quality and curbing childhood obesity.
