Women Infants Children (WIC) Nutrition Program

Providing free nutrition education, breastfeeding support, healthy food, health referrals, and other related services, WIC’s goal is to help keep pregnant and breastfeeding women and children under the age of 5 healthy.

WIC is open to all kinds of families in Colorado: married or single parents, working or not working. If you’re a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent, or other legal guardian of a child under 5, you can apply for WIC.

The program is created to help:

  • Pregnant women
  • Breast-feeding women (up to one year postpartum)
  • Non-breastfeeding postpartum women (up to 6 months postpartum)
  • Infants
  • Children up to the age of 5 years

You can participate in Colorado WIC if you:

  • Live in Colorado
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding , and/or have a child younger than 5 years
  • Have a family income less than WIC guidelines
  • Currently get Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), food stamps or Medicaid
  • Have a foster child under age 5
  • Meet certain financial requirements and be “nutritionally at risk”
