We’ve chosen this location to make it easy for mothers and caretakers in Encinitas to get the services they need at the Encinitas WIC office, located not far from the I-5 Freeway.

In addition, the WIC program also provides resources to help create a healthy lifestyle for yourself and the children in your care:
- Checks to purchase healthy foods, like milk, fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, eggs, cheese, juice, cereal, peanut butter, and more. All of the foods we provide through the WIC Program emphasize on protein, Vitamins A & C, calcium and/or iron.
- Health education and nutritional services to promote healthy eating and healthy children. We provide these to parents and caregivers of infants or young children so that they have everything they need to know about nutrition, physical activity, and other health topics.
