The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a free nutrition education program that helps families identify healthy nutrition choices that work for them.
Women on WIC eat a healthier diet, have healthier babies and receive early prenatal care.
Infants born to WIC mothers weigh more and have improved growth and development rates.
Children on WIC eat foods with more iron and vitamin C, and visit their doctors regularly.
You are eligible for WIC if you meet all of the following criteria:
- Live in Oregon
- Are a pregnant, postpartum or breastfeeding woman, an infant or a child under 5 years old
- Have a nutritional need
- Have a household income that meets the current income guidelines.
*Fathers, grandparents, foster parents or other guardians may apply for WIC for their children.
