What services does WIC provide?

Nutrition and Health Education:

  • Provides individual nutrition counseling sessions
  • Counsels high risk participants with special dietary needs
  • Promotes healthy food choices
  • Teaches the relationship between nutrition and good health

At each clinic visit, you will have an opportunity to learn about nutrition. We provide participants with education on prenatal nutrition, infant feeding, breastfeeding, meal planning, shopping on a budget and much more.

Breastfeeding Education and Support:

  • Supports breastfeeding women (lactation educators, breastfeeding peer counselors)
  • Promotes breastfeeding as the optimal feeding method
  • Provides breastfeeding aids (including pumps)
  • Makes referrals to breastfeeding resources in the local community

Referrals and Service Information:

  • Provides individuals with referrals to medical care services
  • Refers routinely to: immunizations, substance abuse counseling, health care coverage (Medicaid, Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP), dental care, lead screening, prenatal care, family planning, well-child exams and food banks)
  • Accepts and provides follow-up on referrals from area health care providers

What foods does WIC provide?

WIC foods improve the diets and health of women and children enrolled in the program. As a result, pregnant women are less likely to have low birth weight babies. Infants develop better and children are less likely to have iron deficiency and other health problems. WIC approved foods include:

  • Iron-fortified cereal
  • 100% Juice
  • Eggs
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Milk
  • Whole grains
  • Peanut butter
  • Dried or canned beans
  • Infant fruits and vegetables

Exclusively breastfeeding women also receive:

  • Cheese
  • Canned fish

Exclusively breastfed infants also receive jarred infant meats.

What do I need to bring to the clinic?

  • Each woman, child and infant applying for WIC needs to be present.
  • Identification for each person: This may be a birth certificate, driver’s license, crib card or Medicaid card. A current photo ID is required of all adult participants, adult endorsers and proxies.
  • Proof of residency: A current bill or Medicaid card with your street address on it (sorry, PO Boxes are not allowed).
  • Proof of income: Pay stubs showing gross income for the household for the last 30 days or a current Medicaid card.
  • Immunization records for all children.

Talk to the WIC Clinic if you are having problems bringing any of the above information.


Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What happens at the clinic?

Your proof of income, identification and residency will be reviewed. For all applicants, height and weight will be checked and a drop of blood will be taken to check for iron level. You will be asked about your health and the foods you eat. You will receive nutrition education. All information provided to the WIC program remains confidential.
If you are found eligible for WIC, you will receive a WIC ID packet and your eWIC Card with instructions on how to purchase eligible food items at WIC authorized stores.
See your local WIC Clinic for grocery stores in your area that accept WIC vouchers.

Where can I get more information on breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding gives your baby the best start. It has many benefits for babies and mothers. Doctors recommend babies be breastfed for at least the first year of life. For breastfeeding resources, call 1-877-WIC-KIDS or your local WIC clinic.

What if my baby needs formula?

WIC provides Similac Advance and Similac Soy Isomil formulas. See your local WIC clinic if your infant has a special medical or nutritional need for a specialty formula. A completed Utah WIC Formula and Food Authorization Form from a doctor or other qualified medical professional will be required.

How do I use my eWIC Card?

The eWIC card is similar to a credit or debit card. Participants will take their WIC approved items to checkout and insert the card into the card reader. The WIC approved items will be deducted from the benefits package. Any remaining benefits will remain on the card and expire at midnight on the last day of the month.
