WIC Program Information
WIC Forms & Food List
The Erie-Huron WIC Program strongly promotes, supports, and encourages breastfeeding! To talk to our WIC Breastfeeding Coordinator or Peer Helper call the Sandusky or Norwalk office.
The Ohio Department of Health, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, recommends feeding only breast milk for the first six months of life followed by continued breastfeeding for 1 year or longer, as mutually desired by mother and child.
