Women, Infants & Children (WIC)
WIC is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children and is available to residents of Springfield and Clark County.
The program helps income eligible pregnant and breastfeeding women, women who recently had a baby, infants, and children up to five years of age who are at health risk due to inadequate
WIC improves pregnancy outcomes by providing clients or referring them to support services necessary for full-term pregnancies. It also helps reduces infant mortality by reducing the incidence of low birth weight babies. Infants who weigh less than 5.5 pounds at birth are at greater risk of breathing problems, brain injuries and physical abnormalities. WIC also provides infants and children with a healthy start in life by improving poor or inadequate diets.
We provide nutrition and breastfeeding education and support; supplemental, highly nutritious foods such as cereal, eggs, milk, whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables, and iron-fortified infant formula; and referral to prenatal and pediatric health care and other maternal and child health and human service programs (examples: Head Start, Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as Food Stamps).
