    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    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.

    Methods

    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.

    Results

    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.
