WIC, the special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants, and children, was designed to influence lifetime nutrition and health behaviors in a high-risk population. WIC has been shown to reduce premature births, reduce low and very low birth-weight babies, reduce fetal and infant deaths, and reduce the incidence of low-iron anemia, increase access to prenatal care earlier in pregnancy, increase pregnant women’s consumption of key nutrients (iron, protein, calcium, and vitamins A and C), increase immunization rates, improve diet quality, and increase access to regular healthcare. One of the current aims of WIC is to work on reducing the incidence of childhood obesity.
WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding support, health screenings and referrals, and monthly checks for healthy foods. Tulalip Health Clinic WIC is able to provide a variety of high-quality breast pumps for clients needing such devices.
Eligibility depends on household size and income. Contact us to determine if you meet requirements.
Washington State WIC contracts with various agencies around Washington, including the Tulalip Tribes of Washington, to administer the WIC Program.
