Fit WIC Missouri

Fit WIC is a nationwide program to prevent childhood overweight in young children ages 2-5 in the WIC community. Fit WIC projects were originally piloted in 1999 by 5 state agencies: California, Kentucky, Vermont, Virginia, and the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, with funding from USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service.  Since that time, Fit WIC has become a part of WIC activities locally and at the state level all across the nation.  All Local WIC Providers in Missouri are encouraged to take part in the Fit WIC Missouri Program to prevent overweight in children.  State goals define the expected outcomes of Fit WIC Missouri and can easily be adapted to the local level.  The framework provides a step-by-step implementation plan, resources to accomplish recommended activities, and suggested evaluation tools.  The following links provide current information for local agency participation in Fit WIC Missouri, as well as a history of Missouri’s Fit WIC program.
