WIC Clinic

  • Welcome to the Kansas WIC Program!

    WIC is a nutrition program that provides nutrition and health education, healthy food and other services to Kansas families who qualify. WIC stands for Women, Infants and Children.

    WIC’s goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women, new moms, and kids under age 5 healthy. To do this, WIC provides:

    • Personalized nutrition information and support
    • Checks to buy healthy food
    • Tips for eating well to improve health
    • Referrals for services that can benefit the whole family

     

    But that's not all! WIC also offers immunization screening and referral, breastfeeding support, and nutrition and health classes on a variety of topics including meal planning, maintaining a healthy weight, picky eaters, caring for a new baby, shopping on a budget and more.

    The Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program will help pregnant and breastfeeding mom’s by phone, text and clinic visits. I can assist them in the benefits and overcoming the common barriers to breastfeeding allowing them to get off to a good start. I can provide support for mom & her significant other, advice and expectations for the learning period plus the continuing rewards of breastfeeding. All information will be strictly confidential.

    We encourage you to take advantage of all that WIC offers. boy with wholewheat sandwich
