A total of 33,000 charts will be allocated to 118 local WIC providers based on the November 2005 case load. The "Chart Your Growth!" was developed by the National WIC Association. Please give the chart to WIC children to record their heights at home. If you have any questions, please contact Takako Tagami at 1-800-392-8209 or e-mail TakakoTagami@health.mo.gov.
