WIC
is short for "The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants,
and Children," and provides supplemental food and counseling for low-income
mothers and their children. The food packages usually include basic products
like eggs, milk, fruit and baby formula, among others. Expanding the program
would help more low-income mothers to get by and comfortably feed their
children. With proper financing, the program’s efficiency could continue to
improve. Fairly recent innovations like the EBT card – a kind of debit card used
exclusively for the purchase of WIC items – have already made nutritional
support easier and more effective.
