WIC WELCOMES DADS

We want you to be an active part of the WIC Nutrition Program. WIC values the important role you have in the life of your child. You can apply for your children under the age of five and bring them to their appointments. You can be a single dad or a married dad. You can be a working dad - ask your local WIC office about early morning, evening or lunchtime appointments.

WIC provides information about feeding children, shopping and cooking tips, parenting ideas, recipes and more. We can also help you find resources in your community or area.

Dads may find the following links interesting:
