There was a big announcement made in the last few days.
This affects many mothers and children. I believe the decision I am going to talk about is in the best interest of mothers and children
and yet there is controversy surrounding it. I find that what is usually lying beneath controversy is FEAR.
So, let's get into it. What was this announcement anyway
Have you heard of the WIC program. It stands for Womans, Infants and Children.
healthcare referrals for income-eligible women who are pregnant or post-partum, infants, and children up to age 5.
It is a federal public health nutrition program administered by the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA),
The National WIC Association (NWA) is a non-profit membership association that advocates for WIC and provides education and training to WIC staff.
NWA does not create WIC policy or have oversight of WIC. NWA recently had a Nutrition Education and Breastfeeding Promotion Conference here they made a pretty big announcement.
