Resources for Healthcare Providers

As one of New Jersey’s premier public health nutrition programs, WIC currently reaches approximately 150,000 pregnant women, infants and children in New Jersey. WIC wants to work side-by-side with healthcare providers statewide in attempt to make certain that our most vulnerable families get the healthiest start for lifelong health.

WIC has resources to help your practice encourage eligible families to participate in WIC until their child’s fifth birthday.
