South Dakota WIC aims to safeguard the health of women, infants, and children up to age five who are income-eligible and are at nutritional risk by providing personalized nutrition information, breastfeeding education and support, referral to healthcare and social services, and nutritious foods to supplement diets.
WIC is considered one of the most successful public health programs, and its benefits are documented in numerous studies. WIC improves the health of mothers, children, and babies and reduces healthcare costs. In South Dakota, WIC is part of the Department of Health and the Office of Child and Family Services. This partnership allows WIC clinics to be co-located with other health services, which promotes collaboration with essential health services and immediate referrals to services.
