Loving Support Makes Breastfeeding Work is the WIC breastfeeding promotion campaign, national in scope and implemented at the state level. The goals of the campaign are to encourage WIC participants to INITIATE and CONTINUE breastfeeding. WIC mothers choosing to breastfeed are provided information through counseling and educational materials.
WIC mothers are encouraged to breastfeed if possible, but WIC provides iron-fortified infant formula for mothers who choose this feeding method. Participants generally receive checks or vouchers to purchase specific foods each month that are designed to supplement their diets. In addition to infant formula (iron-fortified or special therapeutic formulas), WIC foods include iron-fortified infant cereal and adult cereal, vitamin C-rich fruit or vegetable juice, eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter, dried beans/peas, tuna fish and carrots.

** Models controlled for: maternal age, household size, work status, maternal education, depressive symptoms score (marital status excluded – all non-single mothers initiated breastfeeding)
