Food Packages

WIC approved foods are good sources of important nutrients. No single food supplies all the nutrients you need, so eat a variety of different foods every day to stay healthy.

WIC Food Packages provide a variety of foods but not everything you need. Adding your WIC foods to foods you usually eat will help you have a healthier diet. The food package you receive depends upon whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and the age of your child.

Some of the foods you may receive:

Pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, and children one to five years of age may receive:

  • Skim, 0%, 1/2%, or 1% Milk
  • Natural cheese
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt

  • Vitamin C rich juice
  • Dry beans, peas, or peanut butter
  • Canned beans
  • Tuna (as applicable)
  • Pink salmon (as applicable)
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • 100% whole wheat bread
  • Tortillas
  • Brown rice
  • Whole Wheat Pasta

Infants may receive:
