The federally funded WIC program serves low-income pregnant women and new mothers, along with infants and children up to age 5 who are at health or nutritional risk. The Indiana WIC program is housed within the Indiana State Department of Health and served an average of 145,000 Hoosiers each month in fiscal year 2017. The program provides nutrition education, breastfeeding promotion and support, healthy foods and referrals to other services.
