WIC - Nutrition Education & Counseling
Nutrition education is available to all adult WIC participants and, whenever possible, to child participants and other family members.
The goals of nutrition education are:
- to achieve a positive change in the food consumption habits related to the participant's nutrition risks
- to teach the relationship between proper nutrition and good health
- to promote the optimal use of WIC supplemental foods and other nutritious foods
- to provide nutrition education within the context of the ethnic and cultural preferences of the participants.
