WIC Services - Women, Infants and Children

WIC - The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women,
Infants and Children

WIC Provides nutrition counseling and vouchers for nutritious foods to income-eligible women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and children from birth through age five. WIC contributes to improved pregnancies and healthier children, resulting in better health and dramatic savings in medical care costs.

Tri-County Health Department has the largest network of WIC clinics in Colorado, serving an average caseload of over 30,000 clients. Last year, this federal program provided over $18,000,000 in direct assistance to local Tri-County families.

Only specific nutritious foods are available, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, milk, cheese, eggs, cereal, peanut butter, beans, fruit juices, infant formula and baby food. Through our clinics, we also screen for anemia, counsel on the benefits of breastfeeding and offer childhood immunizations. (Allowable foods list)
(Español - Comidas Permitidas)

WIC is one of four federal food programs, which also includes Food Stamps, Head Start and the School Lunch Program.
