These lessons will be available online or on the mobile app and are offered as an alternative to in person or staff oriented nutrition education and an option for required participant second and third contacts. A variety of lessons will be available to choose from averaging 8-10 minutes in length. Nutrition Education is a Program requirement and an integral component of WIC as it stresses the value of good nutrition and the benefits necessary for healthy growth and development of infants and children. Certificates of completion of each lesson will be available to participants and record of such lessons will be documented.
For lesson access, participants are encouraged to download the mobile app at NATIONSWIC or online at wichealth.org. An initial log in will be required.
