Breastfeeding Support and Nutrition Information

"Research has shown that there is no better food than breast milk for a baby's first year of life. Breastfeeding provides many health, nutritional, economical and emotional benefits to mother and baby. Since a major goal of the WIC Program is to improve the nutritional status of infants, WIC mothers are encouraged to breastfeed their infants. WIC has historically promoted breastfeeding to all pregnant women as the optimal infant feeding choice, unless medically contraindicated." Quoted from www.fns.usda.gov/wic/Breastfeeding/mainpage.htm.
