Description

The Public Interest reports that "'WIC works, perhaps better than any other government program in existence,' Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman recently declared... WIC is a several billion dollar program serving millions of women and children. The program's popularity stems from the widespread belief that research studies have proven that WIC 'works.' But, although some studies suggest real dietary and health improvements, the great benefits cited above apply only to WIC's prenatal program (only a small part of the total program.) Even here the evidence suggest much more modest effects than WIC's boosters claim.
