WIC Nutrition WBM Celebrating

World Breastfeeding Month Celebrating in Texas

Each August, Texas WIC promotes the value of breastfeeding for the health of infants, children, and women by observing World Breastfeeding Month. During WBM, many WIC clinics across the state host receptions for breastfeeding women and the people who support them in their decisions to breastfeed.

Activities honoring breastfeeding families and educating the public about the many benefits of breastmilk for infants and children include:

  • Presentations of certificates of recognition to breastfeeding moms
  • Community celebrations
  • Health fairs
  • Coloring contests for children
  • Breastfeeding quilt exhibits
  • Receptions or baby showers for breastfeeding moms
