During Your WIC Appointment

WIC offers more than healthy food. WIC provides an “extra” set of eyes on the health and growth of your child! Your child’s measurements and weight will be taken during your appointment and the WIC nutritionist will go over your child’s growth with you. If the nutritionist feels a follow-up with a healthcare provider would be best, you will receive a referral.

WIC is MORE than healthy foods. WIC cares for you and your child! Find out more about WIC at wic.mo.gov.

A mom asked during the last weekend Q&A - "We're eating a lot in the living room, am I ruining my child?"⁠

My response:⁠
You're. Not. Ruining. Your. Child.⁠

There's a lot of messages out there - most telling us we're doing it wrong and ruining our kids...whether is coddling them cutting apples into shapes, or picking up a remade lunch on the shelf.⁠

You know your priorities. ⁠

Do we all want to learn more. Do we often want to do something that seems like a helpful change for our families? Yep. ⁠

That will look different for every family and that's okay. ⁠

You're raising your child. And that's good! ⁠

If one of the things you are working on is picky eating, we have a free picky eater guide in the bio. 😘 ⁠

“Do you name foods ‘grow foods’ and ‘whoa foods’?” Someone asked recently. Actually, no I don’t. Because kids can actually grow quite well on "whoa foods." They have calories, they have nutrients. 🤔⁣⠀
⁣⠀
I like to be as accurate as I can with my kids at their age level. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Big Macs absolutely help kids grow. Soda absolutely contains energy, which can help kids grow as well. And then there are super "grow foods" like dairy, which really needs to be eaten in moderation, if at all. So, I’m personally uncomfortable with the idea of “grow foods” and not grow foods. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Instead, for preschoolers, I talk about what foods do in our bodies. I use actual nutrition principles and make a message that is understandable to a 3yo. Then I model “sometimes foods” in our family menu (but rarely discuss it). Here are my basic messages:⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🍞Sugary foods, grains - helps us move and run⁣, give us energy⠀
🥚Meat, eggs, beans, dairy (protein), nuts - make our muscles strong⁣⠀
🥞Coconut, avocado, olive oils and butter (fats) - help our brains think⁣⠀
⁣⠀
For fruits and veggies, I usually break it down by color. Although this is not accurate for every single veggie, I think it’s a good framework to get started. ⁣⠀
❤️ Red: gives you a strong heart⁣⠀
🧡 Orange: helps you see in the dark⁣⠀
💛Yellow: helps your body heal cuts⁣⠀
💚Green: gives you super powers to fight off sickness⁣⠀
💜💙Blue and Purple: Give you a strong brain⁣⠀
💟White: gives you energy⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Do you have a favorite nutrition message for your kids?⁣⠀
