WIC food prescriptions are based on the type of participant (woman, infant, or child). Nutritionists tailor the food prescription for each individual.
- Infants who are not breastfed receive infant formula. Infants also receive cereal and juice at the appropriate age.
- Women and children get milk, cheese, eggs, cereal high in iron and low in sugar, fruit juice high in Vitamin C, and peanut butter or dried peas or beans.
- Women who are breastfeeding their babies and not receiving infant formula from the WIC program also get tuna and carrots.
