From time to time we all have nutrition questions, especially if we’re pregnant or raising children.  Families struggle everyday to eat healthy and make food choices that are acceptable to picky eaters – all while staying within a budget. The best way to get answers and ideas to these challenges is to turn to a trusted source of nutrition information. The WIC Nutrition Program is that trusted source – and that’s what the “Ask Mass WIC” blog is all about. In addition to providing food, nutrition education and breastfeeding support to pregnant women and moms with kids, Massachusetts WIC employs 200 credentialed nutritionists across the Commonwealth.  Feel free to use this space to tap into our expertise and get useful information on a variety of nutrition issues related to raising and feeding a healthy family.  Do you have questions about the WIC program and its services? Not sure if your favorite cereal is WIC approved?  Can’t find a WIC store in your neighborhood? Want to find a WIC program near where you live or work?  Just ask. All you need to do is click on the “Comment” link directly below this post. We’ll review your question, and post it along with an answer within 24 hours if we can. So join the conversation!
