The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a nutrition program that provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support, healthy food and other services free of charge to Colorado families who qualify. WIC’s goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women and children under age 5 healthy. To do this, WIC provides:
  • Personalized nutrition consultations.
  • Breastfeeding information, support and referrals.
  • Checks to buy free, healthy food to supplement what you already buy.
  • Referrals for medical and dental care, health insurance, child care, housing, lactation support and other services that can benefit the whole family.
  • Nutrition and health education on a variety of topics, including meal planning, maintaining a healthy weight, picky eaters, caring for a new baby, working and breastfeeding, and shopping on a budget.
WIC is for all kinds of families: married and single parents, working or not working. If you’re a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child under 5, you can apply for WIC.
Businesses authorized to accept WIC vouchers, for existing retailers and potential retailers, farmers
Physicians, hospitals, RDRNs, nutritionists
Agencies authorized and funded to provide resources and training for local agency staff
