The Utah Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program would like to welcome you to our website! Our program provides nutrition and breastfeeding services and supplemental foods to pregnant women, new mothers, infants and children up to their 5th birthday. We offer a wide-array of nutrition education, personalized breastfeeding support, and referrals to other public health programs.
WIC provides a nutritious and colorful variety of foods for your family. We recently added great tasting items like yogurt, whole wheat pasta, fresh fruits and vegetables. We are now introducing name brand breakfast cereals and peanut butter to go along with many other healthy foods that will satisfy each member of your family.
We are working hard to transition to electronic benefits in our state. Your family will soon receive a debit type card that you can use to purchase WIC foods for your family. You will not be required to separate your WIC items from personal items or sort your food by check. You will be able to buy what you need each time you shop versus purchasing all of the foods listed on checks at one time. The eWIC card will make shopping much more convenient and discreet!
We welcome you and your family to the WIC Program. Please call us if you have any questions by dialing: 1-877-WIC-KIDS (1-877-942-5437). Please be sure to remind your friends and family members to see if they may also qualify for WIC. We look forward to serving you soon.
Chris Furner, Utah WIC Program Manager
