Participants receive checks each month that are used to buy specific nutritious foods at grocery stores.  
WIC food packages are issued to participants based on their nutritional needs.  
WIC supplements participant’s diets with these nutritious foods:

• Milk
• Cheese
• Eggs
• Cereal
• Juice
• Dried or canned beans
• Peanut butter
• Whole grain bread, tortillas or brown rice
• Fresh fruits and vegetables
WIC encourages women to breastfeed as the most nutritious way to feed their babies.  Mothers who fully breastfeed their babies are issued a larger food package that includes canned light tuna, pink salmon, or sardines.  Totally breastfed babies will receive infant cereal and jars of baby food fruits, vegetables, and meats at six months of age.
Infants who are not breastfed receive supplemental amounts of iron-fortified formula, and beginning at six months of age, they will receive infant cereal and jars of baby food fruits and vegetables.
