June 4, 2010, Newsletter Issue #167: WIC Supports Breastfeeding

Tip of the Week

WIC, (Women, Infants and Children), the program that helps provide nutritional food for pregnant women, or women with babies and children under five years old, also provides extra and extended benefits to mothers who choose to breastfeed including supporting information, access to a State Breastfeeding Coordinator and additional nutritional food in order to encourage more mothers to breastfeed and to do so for the first year of life. The WIC website encourages breastfeeding by providing access to articles and research on the subject, recommending it as a practice for at least one year. Application requirements can be found at http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/breastfeeding/breastfeedingmainpage.HTM.
