I'm a WIC baby
Because my mommy put me in WIC, I have a lot of advantages now
There are many nutrition advantages......
Because mom got into WIC before I was born, I was a healthy weight and am breastfed which is good for my immune system
As I get older , WIC will be important because......
I need protein to grow, which I will get from the beans, milk, eggs, cheese and fish that come in my WIC package
WIC gives me iron, vitamin C, thiamin, niacin and vitamin B which will help my brain grow and keep me from getting sick
I am also less likely to have low iron
which means I will have more energy, better thinking ability, less behavior problems and will recover from sickness faster
With all this help I will do better in school
There are also benefits for mom:
She is more likely to be a healthy weight and have a better health status for when she decides to give me a little brother or sister!
So Thanks, Mom
for making me a WIC baby!
