WIC can make positive impact

May 9, 2013

The special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), available through the LeFlore County Health Department, can make positive changes in the health of pregnant women, infants and children up to five years of age.
 
WIC is a federally funded nutrition education and supplemental food program for pregnant and breastfeeding women, or women who have delivered within the last six months, as well as infants, and children under age five (5). Participants must qualify for the program.   Applicants must qualify within income guidelines, then at nutritional risk through a health assessment. With unemployment rates high at this time, more families are qualifying for this program, not only through income variables but nutritional risk as well due to the fact with less money in the household, nutritious foods are not purchased, which ultimately means less healthy individuals. Please see recent income eligibility guidelines listed below.
 
Once certified, participants will receive food instruments from LeFlore County Health Department to obtain supplemental food items such as milk, cheese, fruit juice high in vitamin C, eggs, iron-fortified formula and cereal, dried beans, peanut butter, tuna and carrots. 
 
The WIC program provides nutrition education to all participants to learn more about nutrition and have questions answered by nutrition professional.
 
The program also introduces participants to other health care services offered within the LeFlore County Health Department such as immunizations, family planning and guidance services.
 
For more information or an appointment please call LeFlore County Health Department at 918-647-8601.
 
LeFlore County Health Department is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
