  • WIC Food Packages: Time for a Change

    January 1, 2006 - Bibliography
    For more than 30 years, the WIC Program has provided foods that supplement the diet of millions of low-income women, infants, and children. The WIC Program has been very successful, particularly in improving nutrient intakes among participants. In early 2004, the Institute of Medicine formed a committee to review the WIC Program’s current supplemental food packages and determine whether a redesign could help participating families eat a healthier diet. The committee’s food package recommendations were presented in this report and matched current dietary guidance for infants and young children. The recommendations encouraged consumption of fruits and vegetables and emphasized whole grains, lower saturated fat, and inclusion of foods that appealed to diverse populations.
