WIC

What does WIC Provide?

Nutrition Education

This is an important, and required, aspect of the WIC Program.

Classes cover different topics every visit, are held at each WIC clinic, and are designed to help participants with:
  • Infant & toddler feeding
  • Breastfeeding
  • Prenatal weight gain
  • Anemia or iron deficiency
  • Child growth and development and other nutrition related health issues
Nutrition Education classes may also be completed online.

If you have a nutrition education appointment scheduled and would like to save time, then visit www.wichealth.org for great learning opportunities, WIC meal planning tools, & delicious easy recipe ideas.
