Job aid for WLOL course: WIC Breastfeeding Basics

WIC food benefits are scientifically-based and intended to address the supplemental nutritional needs of WIC's pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants, and children. This job aid supports content in the WIC Learning Online course, WIC Breastfeeding Basics, and provides a snapshot of the food packages for both women and their infants who are fully and partially breastfeeding as well as fully formula feeding.

Grow Together, also contains many downloadable resources and materials for WIC State and local agencies to share with participants and external partners. These include:
