Stick with WIC until age 5:
Many studies have shown that staying on the WIC program until the child turns 5 increases access to regular health care, increases immunization rates, and improves overall diet quality. WIC also helps reduce hospitalizations and Medicaid costs, ensures a child’s developmental readiness to enter kindergarten, and increases food security for low-income families.
