Breastfeeding Promotion and Support in WIC
Research has shown that there is no better food than breast milk for a baby’s first year of life. It protects babies and their mothers from illness and promotes life-long good health. Breastfeeding also provides nutritional, economical and emotional benefits to mother and baby. Since a major goal of the WIC Program is to improve the nutritional status of infants, WIC mothers are encouraged to breastfeed their infants.
