Evaluation of the effect of WIC supplemental feeding on birth weight.


This study examined the impact of pregnant women's participation in a WIC supplemental feeding program on the birth weight of infants. Data on 1,328 WIC and non-WIC participants were collected from a retrospective review of medical and/or nutrition records. Participation of women in WIC was associated with a positive and significant increment in birth weight of their infants.
