Review of WIC Food Packages: Improving Balance and Choice: Final Report

This new report from the National Academies, which is the second of two, examines the current food packages in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and provides recommendations for revising the food packages so they are consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and address the health and cultural needs of WIC participants.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 5, 2017 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
