The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is a dedicated program designed to improving the health of low-income pregnant women, new mothers, infants, and children (up to 5 years-old) that are at nutrition risk. This is fulfilled by providing them opportunities and nutritious foods to supplement their diets, give them information on health eating, and giving referrals for health care purposes.
This program has shaped communities and states by offering a "lending hand" attitude and example. The Office of Policy Support (OPS) likes to conduct program analyses and assessments to inform policy making and management parts of Federal nutrition assistance programs. They serve as FNS’ coordinating point for program-related nutrition policy and services.
The FNS stands effective in the thriving of their participant's health by having WIC teams that are a part of FNS’ Office Policy Support (OPS), conduct studies that provide analyses and evaluations of the key policy and program issues for Congress and the public’s knowledge and awareness.
