WIC provides food to participants through food vouchers. The participant redeems these vouchers at WIC eligible grocery stores. Foods allowed for purchase with the vouchers include: 100% fruit juice, cereal, cheese, milk, eggs, beans, peanut butter, infant cereal, infant juice, and infant formula. In addition, breastfeeding women receive carrots and tuna fish. WIC can also provide special formula for children and women as needed. All participants receive vouchers with types and amounts of WIC foods based on their nutritional/medical needs. WIC foods are intended to improve the health status of participants and to prevent certain nutritionally related medical conditions that are common among women, infants and children. Recipes
