The WIC Program in Hughes County provides specific supplemental foods for good health and nutrition during critical times of growth and development. Foods provided by the program supply calcium, protein, iron, and vitamins A, D, and C.
WIC provides nutrition education to participants at no cost. Nutrition education is designed to be easily understood by participants and to bear a practical relationship to participant nutritional needs, household situations, and cultural preferences.
Documented benefits of WIC include:
WIC participation has also been associated with improved intakes of protein, calories and other nutrients which often are inadequate in the diets of low income pregnant women and children. Improved utilization of immunization services by children has also been found.
