Applicants must be seen by a WIC nutritionist who will determine whether the individual is at nutrition risk. This is done in the WIC clinic at no cost to the applicant. However, this information can be obtained from another health professional such as the applicant's physician.
"Nutrition risk" means that an individual has medical-based or dietary-based conditions. There are many examples. Some medical-based conditions include anemia (low blood levels), underweight, or history of poor pregnancy outcome. A dietary-based condition includes, for example, a poor diet.
At a minimum, the applicant's height and weight must be measured and bloodwork taken to check for anemia.
An applicant must have at least one of the medical or dietary conditions on the State's list of WIC nutrition risk criteria.
