WIC Screenings and Referralsscarr2023-02-07T23:04:33+00:00
We can provide practical solutions, resources, and referrals if you have questions about your infant/child’s growth, nutrition, or feeding habits.
We perform basic health screenings during your visit which include:
Height and weight checks
Nutrition and feeding habits
Annual blood iron level checks (hemoglobin measures from your doctor are just fine)
We understand that the challenges and complexities of raising a child extend beyond what WIC provides. Our staff can help connect you with other local organizations that provide support to families. Below are a few of our most commonly requested resources:
Skagit FVRx is a free, year-long healthy eating program that supports folks with vouchers (FVRx Bucks) to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. The program also provides supporting nutrition education and connections to local resources for healthy eating and active living.
The program begins every January and runs for a full year. Materials and support are provided in English and Spanish. Visit the Skagit FVRx webpage to learn more and submit an interest form to see if you qualify.
