WIC is a program that helps pregnant mothers & their babies with getting nutritional food that they need. You go to your appointments & they help you with questions regarding nutrition, breastfeeding & eating healthy. They give vouchers for juices, dairy products, eggs, fruits & veggies, whole grains & cereals. You buy only what the voucher says. Their goal us to have you start eating healthy so that you pass those habits onto your children. My MIL works for WIC & she goes to nutrition classes to keep up to date on what's healthy. They also encourage breastfeeding & have classes to help you.
