Nutrition

WIC understands that the first years of life are the formative years for shaping healthy eating attitudes and habits.

For example:

  • Babies are born with their own internal cues for how much to eat.
  • Children should be exposed to a variety of foods in a positive, non threatening manner.
  • And meal time is much more than just eating-it's education, socialization, it's development of fine motor skills and learning to feed themselves.
Your WIC clinic can help you deal with:
  • Picky eaters
  • Weight concerns
  • Understanding the benefits of family style meal service
  • The importance of daily physical activity for overall health
And WIC clinics will connect you with other programs and services your family might need.
