WIC's goal is to make physical activity part of everyday life for participants, their families and WIC staff. Fit WIC is the approach we are using to make this happen.
What is Fit WIC? WIC staff will talk with you about weight, physical activity and healthy lifestyles, if you are interested. Together we can figure out fun, easy, low cost ideas, activities and goals for you and your family. The staff are working on their own healthy lifestyle goals and understand how hard it can be.
Does Fit WIC work? Yes! WIC staff made healthy lifestyle changes for themselves and their families. Parents and caregivers were empowered and made healthy lifestyle changes for themselves and their families.
