Women, Infants, and Children Program


WIC

 

The CNMI Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (CNMI WIC Program) is a short term intervention program for a lifetime of nutrition and breastfeeding health benefits.  The program strives to improve the health status and wellbeing of women, infants, and children of the Northern Mariana Islands during the crucial time of development. 

 Program Priorities: 

The CNMI WIC Program provides:

Ø  Nutrition education

 Ø  Breastfeeding support services

 Ø  Supplemental nutritious foods

 Ø  Referrals to appropriate health and social services

    Program Objectives:

 Provide services in a participant centered manner to empower our families to make healthful choices to last a lifetime.  The CNMI WIC Program serves: pregnant women, breastfeeding women up to one year postpartum, non-breastfeeding women up to six months postpartum, infants (those less than 12 months of age), and children under the age of five (5) who meet income eligibility guidelines and are determined to be at nutritional risk.  In the prenatal period, we support our mothers to improve their baby’s health outcome and reduce the incidences of prematurity and low birth weight.
