There have been a couple of changes in Missouri’s Women Infants Children’s nutrition program this year.
Annita Nickels, Pulaski County WIC Program Director, says one big change is how the funds are made available to WIC clients.
The program seeks to improve the health of low-and-moderate income pregnant women, postpartum women, and children up to the age of five by providing access to nutritious foods and by developing healthy habits.
Nickels says there is no limit to the number of WIC clients who can be served and believes many more should be signed up.
WIC services are offered every Monday from 7 a-m to 4:30 p-m at the Pulaski County Health Center in Crocker. The WIC office in the Lincoln Center in Waynesville is open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 7 a-m. to 4:30 p-m. Appointments are recommended. The number in Crocker to call to make an appointment is 736-2218, the number in Waynesville is 774-3115.
