The WIC Program: Background, Trends, and Economic Issues, 2015 Edition
Victor Oliveira (au); Elizabeth Frazao (au)
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides supplemental food, nutrition education (including breastfeeding promotion and support), and referrals to health care and other social services to low-income, nutritionally at-risk women, infants, and children up to 5 years of age. On average, over half of all infants in the U.S., over a quarter of all pregnant and postpartum women, and over a quarter of all children less than 5 years of age participate in the program. The Health, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which authorized funds for WIC, is set to expire on Sept. 30, 2015. To aid the reauthorization process, this report explains how WIC works, examines program trends, and discusses some of the major economic issues facing the program. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
