  • Description
  • After 30 years, the federal Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Program has revised its food package to reflect current nutrition standards, cultural realities and available food choices. The Five Sandoval Indian Pueblos (FSIP) WIC program is excited about implementing these improvements and is preparing to educate WIC participants about them. The new food package includes most of the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations and is consistent with the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the American Academy of Pediatrics infant feeding guidelines. The FSIP WIC program will implement the new food package by October 1, 2009. The new food package will include a variety of new choices. The new foods that will be distributed by WIC were chosen because they provide specific nutrients to aid in proper growth and development. In addition to improving the choices of foods for the culturally diverse FSIP WIC population, the food changes are intended to reinforce WIC’s current nutrition education goals: Increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables; Increase the consumption of whole grains; Lower fat in the diet; Promote and support breastfeeding as the preferred method of infant nutrition.
