How WIC Supports Breastfeeding

WIC promotes, supports and encourages mothers to breastfeed their babies for the many proven health, nutrition and emotional benefits to both mothers and babies. Breastfeeding is the best way to both nourish and nurture your baby.

Currently, more than half of U.S. infants benefit from the WIC nutrition program. ​

Learning to breastfeed takes practice for you and your baby.

Basic breastfeeding information

For more details, talk to your obstetrician or pediatrician, a lactation consultant, nurse, nutritionist, other health professionals, or other women who have breastfed.

​WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program

Since 1992, the WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program has promoted local farmers markets and helped bring locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables into t​he homes of WIC participants. Each summer, local health departments issue $30 to eligible WIC recipients for the purchase of locally grown fruits, vegetables and fresh-cut herbs. We have 103  Farmers Markets ​ in 94 counties across Kentucky accepting WIC farmers market benefits.
