Tioga Opportunities, Inc., Women, Infant, & Children (WIC) program would like to give a special thank you to the Walmart Foundation for a $1,000 grant to help with our 2017 Healthy Lifestyle Initiative. This year we are focusing efforts to enhance awareness of prenatal participants, to better understand the need for extra calories during their pregnancies in order to achieve healthy birth outcomes. Increased education & awareness will highlight portion control (in regard to the need for extra calories), in helping mothers navigate what is healthy for them and baby. WIC plans to use the awarded grant money to provide those participants who are a part of the Healthy Lifestyle Initiative, portion size containers so they can use what they learn as part of the WIC experience, at home.
