Breastfeeding is best!
Breast milk is the best food for babies. Breastfeeding give babies the best start in life. The WIC program encourages women to breastfeed.
Breastfeeding mothers receive additional foods. If you are breastfeeding only, you will receive canned tuna, fresh or frozen vegetables and peanut butter, in addition to your other WIC foods.
Breastfeeding also builds a special closeness between you and your baby that will last a lifetime.
