This study examined the relationship between enrollment in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infant and Children (WIC) and delivery of small-for-gestational-age infants.
WIC records were linked with birth certificates for 1992 full-term births ; 41 234 WIC records and 18 534 non-WIC records were identified.
Length of participation was defined by gestational age at enrollment.
Logistic regression was used to examine the association between WIC participation and small-for-gestational-age births.
Odds ratios for small-for-gestational-age births decreased with increasing length of enrollment in WIC Conclusions.
Enrollment in WIC is associated with a lower prevalence of small-for-gestational-age deliveries.
