WIC/Public Health Nutrition

 PCHD's nutrition services include:

  • Women, Infants and Children (WIC) which provides nutrition and breastfeeding education, access to nutritious foods and improved healthcare access for low and moderate-income families. At WIC, we talk a lot about mom's. But we are here to help everyone who cares for infants and children, including dads, grandparents and foster parents. 
  • Breastfeeding  Breast milk is the healthiest food for your baby. PCHD and WIC support breastfeeding as the norm for infant feeding and support families to achieve their breastfeeding goals.  
  • Nutrition counseling - A WIC nutritionist will talk with you about your familys' nutrition, provide tips on planning healthy meals and shopping on a budget.
  • Fit Families - Families identify health habits they want to improve for their child and/or family. Fit Families is avaible to families who have a 2 or 3 year old.
