The YvY WIC program is a nutritional program for expecting, nursing, and postpartum women, infants and children to age 5. 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 . Licensed nutritionists, lactation specialists, and peer counselors provide participants with information on healthy eating, nursing assistance and support. An extensive multilingual nutrition resource library supplies participants with informational materials on a wide range of nutrition and health related topics. Facilitated discussion nutrition classes, one-on-one counseling sessions, and healthy lifestyle initiatives are a regular part of the program.
