Texas WIC: more than just healthy foods
Every month, almost a million Texans come to WIC to get the services, support, and inspiration they need to have a healthy pregnancy, breastfeed successfully, and raise amazing kids!
You can get one-on-one breastfeeding and nutrition counseling, take online classes, and learn about other resources in the community that can help you make smart, healthy choices for your family every day.
More than half of the babies in Texas get WIC services
