Grow and Glow Breastfeeding Training for Wisconsin Local WIC Staff

Breastfeeding promotion and support for WIC participants has been a key part of WIC's mission to improve the health of nutritionally at-risk women, infants, and children. "Using Loving Support to Grow and Glow in WIC: Breastfeeding Training for Local WIC Staff," is a USDA competency-based curriculum developed under cooperative agreement with Every Mother, Inc. The curriculum includes 10 teaching modules; each module will take 15-20 minutes to complete.

Per WIC Policy 3.40, all WIC staff are required to complete this training to ensure that all staff attain a level of proficiency in the skills required to promote and support breastfeeding in the WIC local agency clinic.
