WIC is a great federal assistance program for low-income families, supplying women, infants, and children with food and nutritional information.
I have been with the WIC program since the birth of my two-year-old son, and it's incredibly helpful. Our WIC app is very informative. Picture tabs make it easy to use and understand. The app keeps track of the benefits used and is filled with many resources for growing children.
WIC provides many women with a healthy lifestyle during and after pregnancy, as well as food for infants and young children.
I formula-fed my son and the program paid for the formula for the first year. A big money saver! The WIC program provides a benefits card that is accepted in many places. Farmers market coupons are also given to families yearly.
In our WIC program, toddlers are also given a free dentist exam at the WIC office during their normal in-person office visit. Don't worry... the visits are short but informative. Also, the rooms are filled with plenty of toys to keep the little ones busy, while you speak with the nutritionist for a smooth visit!
