WIC is a supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children as explained by the USDA. The program provides supplemental food, nutrition education and health care referrals to qualifying women who are pregnant or who have recently had a baby. The assistance extends to infants and children up to 5 years old. These individuals must be considered nutritionally at-risk. To be eligible, a woman must be a resident of the state in which she applies. She also must meet the income requirements or be receiving Medicaid, SNAP benefits or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.
