A Proud Participant in the WIC Program
We at Abbott Nutrition strive to ensure that mothers receive the support they need to give their children nutritious food no matter what their particular life circumstances are. That is why we are fully committed to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). This federal program serves women who are pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding, as well as infants and children up to the age of five. WIC was designed to provide nutrition education, supplemental foods, and referrals for health and social services to women and children who are economically disadvantaged and nutritionally at risk.
