MI WIC: Women, Infants and Children

Women, Infants & Children (WIC):

WIC purple logo for Tuscola County Health Department

WIC is a no-cost Supplemental Nutrition and Education Program.

Our goal in the WIC program is to improve health outcomes and quality of life for eligible women, infants and children by providing nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, nutritious food, and referrals for health and other services.

As part of the WIC community, you can take advantage of any of the services we provide, including:

""

Healthy Food

Food is only as good as the nutrients it provides. Through WIC, moms receive monthly benefits on an EBT card to buy healthy food.

""

Nutrition Education

We offer guidance on how to shop for healthy food, how to prepare it and how to entice children to eat it. We also offer free counseling with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN) for clients at high nutritional risk.

Breastfeeding Support icon

Breastfeeding Support

We guide and educate moms to help them successfully achieve their breastfeeding goals. We also offer free counseling with an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
