What to Expect at WIC
WIC provides more than food. WIC supports moms and moms-to-be with breastfeeding help, nutrition education, and referrals as their children grow. Watch the video to learn what to expect at WIC.
What to Take to Your WIC Appointment
If you don’t have any of the items listed or have questions, call the WIC clinic to find out what you should bring to your appointment.
What Happens at Your Appointment
At the office, WIC staff will:
- Look at your proof of income for your household.
- Ask a few questions about your family’s health and nutrition habits.
- Weigh, measure, and check iron status for you (if pregnant) or your child.
If you qualify, you’ll get a food package specially designed to meet your needs, and a Texas WIC card to use at the grocery store. It keeps track of your WIC food benefits and works just like a debit card.
If you have any questions or have a special situation, call or go by the office before your appointment so they may assist you.
