A Handy Tool for WIC Members
There’s a smarter way to WIC thanks to the brand-new WIC Mississippi mobile app.
The free app, sponsored by Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), will help WIC participants learn more about the program, provide a searchable map of WIC locations and directions, and offer available healthy food options using WIC approved foods. It will also give users access to nutrition information, healthy eating guidelines, and recipes.
Download the free app by searching “MS WIC” in the Apple App Store and “WIC Mississippi” on Google Play. The app will give users access to the latest news and announcements from the Mississippi WIC program, and helpful resources for WIC moms.
WIC is a federally funded program that helps low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5, who are at nutritional risk, by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating including breastfeeding promotion and support, and referrals to health care.
