Nutrition


​"Families grow healthy with WIC" is more than just a slogan to us. We offer many ways to learn about nutrition from pregnancy through childhood. Whether you come for a group class or an individual appointment with a counselor or dietitian, you will leave with new ideas for how to make healthy food choices. Raising a healthy family is every parent's dream. WIC can help!  

Here are some examples of the kinds of things you might talk about at a WIC appointment.

  • Pregnancy: how to eat for a healthy weight gain, dealing with nausea  
  • Infants: breastfeeding, when and how to introduce solids, weaning to a cup
  • Toddlers: how to raise a healthy eater and plan meals your child will enjoy

Healthy Foods from WIC

Healthy foods are specially chosen to match the nutritional needs of women, infants, and children. The brochure, Your WIC Foods, shows exactly what each category of WIC participant receives each month. The WIC Shopping Guide is a complete list of WIC authorized foods.
