What is "nutritional risk"?

Two major types of nutritional risk are recognized for WIC eligibility:

  1. Medically-based risks, such as anemia, underweight, maternal age, history of pregnancy complications, or poor pregnancy outcomes.
  2. Diet-based risks, such as inadequate dietary pattern.

Nutritional risk is determined by a health professional such as a physician, nutritionist or nurse and is based on federal guidelines. This health screening is free to program applicants.
