Nutritional Help


The food you eat every day, even before you are pregnant, is important for your health and that of your child.  Once you become pregnant it is even more important to eat right since you are eating for both you and your baby. Below we have provided you with free or low cost resources to help you and your child, during and after pregnancy, with food and nutritional needs.

Eating Right During Pregnancy

Nutritional health during pregnancy is tied to several issues including pregnancy nutrition itself, overall health, weight gain and eating during pregnancy. If you are eating a healthy diet before you become pregnant, you may only need to make a few changes to meet the nutritional needs of pregnancy. You will probably need to increase your usual servings of a variety of foods from the four basic food groups. We have provided an entire section to help a pregnant woman with general pregnancy nutrition, weight gain, and diet information

Below we have listed several of the federal, state and local programs that will provide you with information about, and access to, a more nutritious diet. Please also visit Eating and Nutrition During Pregnancy and Being Healthy Before and During Pregnancy and Weight Gain During Pregnancy all on the website Pregnancy And Children.

WIC

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides free food, nutrition counseling, and referrals to health and other social services to participants at no charge. WIC serves low-Income pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, and infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk. WIC is available in all 50 U.S. states.  For the WIC program in your state click on the link State WIC offices.

Mothers participating in WIC are encouraged to breast feed their infants if possible, but State WIC agencies will provide formula to mothers who choose to use it. The WIC Farmers' Market Nutrition Program provides coupons to WIC participants that they can use to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farmers' markets.

Some additional resources about the WIC program include the following websites:
