Enrollment in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) is suboptimal, particularly for eligible children aged 1 to 4 years. We used converged data from key informants from October 2021 to January 2023 to understand the barriers to and opportunities for WIC utilization and the role of the health care provider in links to WIC. Families and WIC staff identified gaps in provider knowledge and an expressed need for improved collaboration between health providers and WIC.
