WIC - Nutrition Education & Counseling

Florida Department of Health in Osceola County

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.
