This program, funded by the New York State Department of Health, provides nutrition education, lactation counseling, checks for nutritious foods, and referrals to social service and health care agencies for expecting, nursing, and postpartum women, and infants and children to age 5. Licensed nutritionists, lactation specialists, and peer counselors provide participants with information on healthy eating, nursing assistance and support. An extensive nutrition resource library supplies participants with informational materials on a wide range of nutrition and health related topics and issues. Group nutrition classes, informative seminars, food demonstrations, and healthy lifestyle initiatives are a regular part of the program.

Yeled V’Yalda WIC has been serving the New York City WIC population since April 2004. Originally allocated a caseload of 2,500 Yeled V’Yalda WIC has had its caseload increased annually by NYS DOH, with the program currently servicing over 10,000 participants monthly.

The collaboration with the other divisions of Yeled V’Yalda, such as Head Start, Ezra Medical Center, Facilitated Enrollment, and the Early Head Start Expectant Mom’s Program allows WIC participants to benefit from all inclusive services in one convenient and accessible location, ultimately contributing to a healthier community.

The YVY WIC program is a nutritional program for women, infants, and children from age 0-5. It provides nutritional and lactation counseling by certified nutritionists and lactation specialists to eligible pregnant, nursing and post-partum women, their infants and children up until five years of age. In addition, supplemental nutritious foods are provided along with information on healthy eating, support about the beneficial effects of nursing and referrals to healthcare and community services. Practical workshops and seminars are a regular part of the program and YVY is very pleased to have these valuable services available as it continues to expand into all areas that will ultimately contribute to a healthier community.
