WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) Nutrition & Education Program100% compliance at HNA WIC Nutrition Centers from Department of Health
For mothers and children thru age 5
"We could not have done it without WIC. I was grateful to get the formula when they were babies, and now I am happy they get the foods they need to stay healthy and be at good weights."
Designed specifically for women, infants, and children, this program provides vouchers for nutritious foods and education in a supportive environment. WIC is a federally funded program designed for pregnant women, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children under age five.
Home Nursing Agency operates WIC in Blair and Centre counties, serving more than 5,000 women, infants and children each month. WIC eligibility is based on income for those family members who have a nutritional risk. Since 2009, WIC now offers some newer choices to the food package to reinforce important nutrition messages and provide choice and variety to our WIC families.
Recently, three nutritionists for Home Nursing Agency’s Centre County WIC Program received their International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) credential. IBCLCs are experts in lactation and breastfeeding care, whose skills allow them to work to promote, protect and support breastfeeding.
