Healthy meals play a major role in a child’s earliest years of development. In 2019, 29 percent of Colorado’s youngest children (over 96,000 children under 5) received food vouchers from the Special Supplemental Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). WIC helps low-income pregnant women, infants and children access essential nutritious foods, nutrition education and counseling.
