Frequently Asked Questions:

What is WIC?

WIC is a supplemental nutrition program for Women, Infants and Children up to age 5. It provides nutritious supplemental foods, breastfeeding support, as well as nutrition education and referral to health care services at no cost to eligible families.

Who is eligible and who can apply?

  • Pregnant women
  • Women who are breastfeeding a baby under 1 year of age
  • Women who have had a baby in the past six months
  • Parents, step-parents, guardians, and foster parents of infants and children under the age of 5 can apply for their children
  • If you have a job or if you have private health insurance, you can still apply for WIC. You do not have to be married to apply for WIC.

You or your child must live in Idaho.  To be eligible on the basis of income, applicants’ income must fall at or below 185 percent of the U.S. Poverty Income Guidelines.

A person who participates or has family members who participate in certain other benefit programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Medicaid, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, automatically meets the income eligibility requirement.

What about fathers, grandparents?

Fathers and grandparents of children under the age of 5 are encouraged to enroll their children in the WIC program.  A parent or guardian can bring their children to appointments, attend nutrition classes, and receive and redeem benefits for their children.
