Women, Infants, and Children: A Nutrition Program

Sherry Miller, RN, Director
Sophie Mobley, Clerk

The purpose of the program is to provide supplemental food, breastfeeding and nutritional counseling and education for all women, infants and children in our district who meet the criteria for the program.

Overall Strategy
To improve pregnancy outcomes by providing or referring to support services necessary for full-term pregnancies. To reduce infant mortality by reducing the incidence of low birth weight (infants under 5 lb 2 oz are at greater risk of breathing problems, brain injuries, and physical abnormalities). Provide infants and children with a healthy start in life by combating poor and/or inadequate diet.

WIC provides the following services for pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children: breastfeeding counseling, health screenings, nutrition education, and referral services. For more information of the WIC services that are available contact:
