About Ellis Shipp Health Department

The Official WIC program is available to low to moderate income pregnant women, recently delivered women, breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk. Fathers can also bring their children to apply for WIC. You may apply for WIC if you are working or unemployed. Check the Income Guidelines Table to see if you are eligible for WIC. This website was created for women looking for WIC information and locations. We are also working towards adding other locations and services that may help out women.

What does WIC provide?

Nutrition Education
At each clinic visit, you will have an opportunity to learn about nutrition. We provide WIC participants with classes on infant feeding, breastfeeding, dental health, shopping on a budget, and much more. The classes you attend should be helpful for you and your family. We will try to schedule you for a class that will meet your needs. Please let the staff know what topics you are interested in.

Breastfeeding Promotion and Support
All mothers want to do what is best for their babies. Breastfeeding gives the very best nutrition possible for your baby. It is always changing to meet your baby's needs. No formula can compare with breast milk.

The Utah WIC program supports breastfeeding. All staff members at each clinic are dedicated to helping all women breastfeed. Peer counselors, who are mothers that have breastfed, are also ready to help.

Nutritious Foods
WIC foods are good sources of important nutrients. No single food gives you all the nutrients you need to stay healthy, so eat many different foods every day.

WIC encourages all women to breastfeed. It is the best food for babies. If a baby is not breastfed, some formula may be provided by WIC. WIC does not supply enough formula to feed your baby for one month. You may still have to buy more formula at the end of the month.

Referrals
The WIC clinic can help you find out about other programs that may be helpful to you and your family. They have information on:

Immunizations
Prenatal care
Family Planning
Well child exams
Health care
Medicaid, Food Stamps and the Family Employment Program
Substance abuse treatment centers
Food banks
Please let the WIC staff know how they can help you!
