WIC
Who We Are
The Arizona Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program is a federally funded program designed to provide supplemental foods, nutrition education, and referrals to other health and social services as a part of good health care during critical times of growth and development. The goal is to prevent health problems and to improve the health status of eligible women, infants, and children.

Facts for You
Find out if you knew the following facts:
  • Women need folic acid or folate in their bodies before they get pregnant. This greatly reduces the chance of having a baby with a birth defect of the brain and spine. Folate also reduces women’s risk of developing heart disease and some forms of cancer.
  • The primary cause of high blood lead levels in children is exposure to deteriorated paint in houses built before 1950.
  • Low fat and fat free milk have the same great nutrition as reduced fat and whole milk, just less fat and fewer calories so go low and drink one percent low fat or fat-free milk. Get all the goodness without all the fat!
  • You and your family should eat a variety of fruits and vegetables every day. Try for at least five-a-day. 
  • All children should be fed the appropriate food portions and sizes to maintain a healthy weight.
  • About 15.5 percent of adolescents (ages 12 to 19) and 15.3 percent of children (ages 6 to 11) are obese.
  • Children should get 60 minutes of physical activity and adults should get at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week.
