In this study, we examine whether the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) has lasting benefits for children as they grow. We use econometric methods using a large national dataset to test whether the program’s built-in incentive to consume healthier foods leads to healthier outcomes as children age.
