Chickasaw Nation WIC

Chickasaw Nation WIC The Chickasaw Nation Women, Infants and Children Supplemental Nutrition Program (WIC) is honored to serve families and provide encouragement and support in feeding their children.

Chickasaw Nation WIC offers up-to-date specialized nutrition information along with a generous food package for growing children from pregnancy up to age 5. The program puts families’ feeding concerns first and works with clients to provide the very best for their growing children. WIC also helps get immunizations and health care if needed as well as encourages women to breastfeed. Breastfeeding peer counselors are here to help WIC breastfeeding moms throughout their journey. Through nutrition education, support and encouragement, the Chickasaw Nation WIC staff connects with families to assist them in improving and enhancing the quality of their lives. Applicants may apply online at Chickasaw.net/WIC, or an appointment is just a phone call away. Wondering if you are eligible? Visit Chickasaw.net/WIC for eligibility guidelines. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the WIC offices are closed to the public, however, we are serving participants and taking new applicants by phone or email. Chickasaw Nation WIC benefits are issued through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. The card works just like a debit or credit card. It replaces the traditional paper check or voucher and gives families freedom of purchasing WIC food they need with each trip to the store. For more information about the WIC program, please call 1-855-559-0985. A WIC food package includes milk, cheese, yogurt, fruit juice, eggs, cereal, whole grains, canned fish, peanut butter, beans/peas as well as fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Infant foods are also offered, and formula for infants is provided if needed. In the summer months, all WIC participants are eligible for farmers’ market nutrition program checks to exchange for Oklahoma-grown fresh fruits and vegetables from authorized farmers markets and farm stands throughout the Chickasaw Nation and surrounding areas. For a list of Chickasaw Nation WIC offices or to apply online, visit Chickasaw.net/WIC or https://forms.chickasaw.net/PerfectForms/PresentationServer/(S(qoc0mmvvlztnhi xjzufstzk5))/Form.aspx/Play/3oAAggcj?f=3oAAggcj. For more information about the WIC program, please call (855) 559-0985. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

Milk provides the protein and calcium growing children need. Whole cow’s milk is the best choice for children age one to two years. After the second birthday, 1% or skim milk is recommended. If you are considering a milk alternative such as almond or soy milk, do research before you shop. An 8 ounce glass of cow’s milk or soy milk contains 8 grams of protein, while the same amount of almond milk only contains 1 gram.
