WIC Works with Healthcare Providers

Welcome!  You are a key partner in helping WIC participants make healthy choices.  Here you will find links to helpful information on WIC, breastfeeding promotion and support resources and a resettable WIC Formula and Medical Nutritional Prescriptions form.  

WIC encourages all new moms to breastfeed according to AAP recommendations - exclusively for six months with continued breastfeeding along with solid foods for at least one year.  For mothers who can't or choose not to exclusively breastfeed, WIC provides limited amounts of infant formula.  Most infants will need more formula than WIC is able to provide each month.

To receive referral materials for patients or for more information about our program, please contact Ann Garmon, WIC Coordinator (815-334-4859) or by email:
