WIC’s Role in Strengthening Breastfeeding

By National WIC Association

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) has embraced breastfeeding support and promotion as a core element of program services. With medical and dietary guidance – including the first-ever life-stages approach of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans – consistently calling for exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life, WIC is structured to support families in setting and meeting their breastfeeding goals while delivering the nutrients needed by infants to grow and thrive.
