Will WIC provide all of the food my baby and I need?

No, WIC will not provide all of the food needed for a month. Food provided by WIC is intended to supplement the diet. The food packages (PDF Document) approved for use in the Missouri WIC program are designed to help meet infants’ developmental needs and current pediatric feeding recommendations, and to complement the eating patterns of preschool children. WIC food also supplements the special requirements of pregnant and breastfeeding women and help replenish the nutrient stores women used during pregnancy.
