Each year WIC announces the Loving Support Award of Excellence program, formerly known as the Loving Support Award of Excellence.
Information on infant formula.
Secretary of Agriculture, do hereby proclaim August 1–7, 2023, as National WIC Breastfeeding Week.
Research has shown that the WIC Program has been playing an important role in improving birth outcomes and containing health care costs.
This information collection is mandated by section 231 of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Section 231 of the HHFKA requires USDA to implement a program to recognize exemplary breastfeeding support practices at WIC local agencies and clinics.
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (the Act), PL 111-296, established a new reporting requirement for the WIC Program. USDA is now mandated to compile and publish annually, breastfeeding performance measurements based on program participant data on the number of partially and fully breastfed infants for each WIC state and local agency.
These charts give the maximum monthly allowances of supplemental foods for women and children as well as for infants.
