WIC Growth Charts


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Center for Health Statistics created these charts with direction from the FNS Supplemental Food Programs Division. These charts focus only on WIC aged children, making documentation and tracking easier.The WIC logo has been added to the border of the growth chart. Black and white and colored versions are available.

Visit the CDC Web site for BMI-for-age charts and to find out how to view, print, and reproduce clinical growth charts. Information on computer programs is also available.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of the World Health Organization (WHO) growth standards to monitor growth for infants and children 0 to 2 years of age in the U.S.  CDC developed the Birth to 24 Months based on the (WHO) international growth standards.  WIC nutrition risk criteria have been updated and revised to incorporate the use of these new charts, to be implemented October 1, 2012.
