The Nebraska branch of the Women, Infants and Children Program (or WIC) is spearheaded by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services as an effort at health improvement and sickness prevention.

This government-funded program is aimed at helping qualified applicants realize the importance of healthy living, especially at the very sensitive period of child bearing. Thus, this program is open to all eligible women of low income, who are at medical or nutritional risk before, during or after pregnancy.

Infants and children under 5 are also encouraged to enroll, with various services being offered in order to prevent or lower the risks of sickness.

What services are being offered by the Nebraska WIC program?

WIC prides itself with the various things they offer to keep participants healthy and vibrant.

Among these are checks to buy healthy food (conducted monthly), personalized nutrition information and support, tips on developing healthy eating habits, breastfeeding education and support, and referrals to health and social services that can benefit the entire family.

Since it is government-funded, eligible applicants can fully enjoy the benefits of these services totally free of charge.

This institution operates under an anti-discrimination code in accordance with the federal law and US Department of Agriculture policy, and is thus prohibited from discriminating on the basis of color, race, nationality, age, sex or disability.
