It’s been a while since we’ve seen you! We would like to check height, weight, and iron (hemoglobin or hgb) during WIC certification and mid-certification appointments to see how you or your child is growing. Have you been to the doctor in the 2 months prior to your appointment? Send us this information from your doctor’s office.
Need your benefits loaded? Please call us for your nutrition education and we’d be happy to reload benefits.

Try cauliflower, carrots, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, or other seasonal veggies you may have on-hand.
Veggie Prep Ideas:
