Why are the WIC foods for women, infants and children only?
Pregnant women, women who just delivered, breastfeeding moms and children up to the age of five have extra nutritional needs to stay healthy. Women and children in these groups are growing quickly and moms who just delivered need to recover from their pregnancy. WIC foods are designed to provide the nutrients these groups need such as protein, iron, folate, calcium, vitamins A and C.
