The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides supplemental foods, nutrition and health education plus health and human services referrals to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, postpartum women, infants and children up to 5 years of age who are at nutritional risk. Health and dietary information provided by a doctor, nurse, nutritionist, dietitian, or clinic / health care provider is used to determine nutritional risk.

The program provides food checks that can be used at local grocery stores and pharmacies to buy specific WIC approved nutritious foods. While on WIC, participants learn about good nutrition, breastfeeding, choosing healthy foods and other health concerns.

In Suffolk County, WIC offices are located at health centers and satellite centers operated by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services. Call one of the WIC sites listed on the back of this paper for more information and to make an appointment.
