About WIC

WIC gives you good foods to help you provide the best possible start for your child to grow up healthy. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, milk, whole grains, eggs, peanut butter, cereal, formula and baby food are made available for your family.

But that's not all. The WIC Program also provides nutrition and health information, breastfeeding education as well as referrals to other services for pregnant and breastfeeding women, new moms, infants, and children to age 5.

WIC is for all kinds of families: married and single parent, working or not working. If you are a mother, father, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guadian of a child younger than 5, you can apply for WIC.

 

 

WIC and NDSU Extension Service Family Nutrition Program receives a grant from the Midwest Dairy Council

WIC and NDSU Extension Service Family Nutrition Program (FNP) received a mini-grant from the Midwest Dairy Council in May of 2017.  The dairy nutrition education mini-grants were for RDN’s, LN’s,school nutrition professionals, chefs, dietetic interns, or university extension nutritionists. This mini-grant was intended to help educate families about how to incorporate dairy foods into a healthy well balanced meal or snack to boost nutrition. The mini-grant award was to educate clients and families in a food pantry or WIC setting, by providing nutrition education through classes and conducting a food demonstration preparing a low cost, minimal ingredient recipe which includes dairy as an ingredient. The grant money was used to purchase the food for the dairy recipe demonstrations, food samples, and supplies used during the classes and samples during the WIC appointments. WIC and the FNP Program teamed up to teach the class.
