WIC is a nutrition program that provides nutrition and health education, healthy food and other services to Kansas families who qualify. WIC stands for Women, Infants and Children. 

WIC’s goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women, new moms, and kids under age 5 healthy. To do this, WIC provides:

  • Personalized nutrition information and support

  • Checks to buy healthy food

  • Tips for eating well to improve health

  • Referrals for services that can benefit the whole family

 

But that’s not all! WIC also offers immunization screening and referral, breastfeeding support, and nutrition and health information on a variety of topics including meal planning, maintaining a healthy weight, picky eaters, caring for a new baby, shopping on a budget and more.

 

We encourage you to take advantage of all that WIC offers.

 

Who's Eligible?

WIC serves Kansas residents who are:

  • Pregnant

  • Breastfeeding, up to baby's first birthday

  • Non-breastfeeding mothers, up to six months after baby's birth
