For children to be healthy and develop as they should, they need access to nutrition for their growing bodies and minds. The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a key component to ensuring infants and toddlers, as well as pregnant and postpartum mothers, have access to healthy nutrition. Participation in Pennsylvania’s WIC program has declined significantly in recent years and the work of this campaign is to reverse that trend. By increasing participation in the WIC program, children and families across the Commonwealth will have more access to the nutritional supports they need to thrive.
