Most mothers wish their babies came with an instruction manual. If you are part of the Texas WIC program, you have access to a lot of free help and advice.
Texas WIC clients can access FREE online courses as part of the free program. Texas WIC is designed to help pregnant and breastfeeding mothers get a healthy start for their infants and children up to age 5. The program also offers access to its WIC clinics and provides free nutritional WIC-approved food.
As soon as your baby is born you’re expected to know everything about taking care of an infant. You have to learn how to nurse your baby and everything the little one is trying to communicate every time they cry.
There’s a lot to learn, but luckily Texas WIC offers a catalog of online classes for mothers. It’s all 100% free of charge. Some of the classes are live during scheduled dates and times. Other classes are “Click and Learn” presentations.
Even if you aren’t part of Texas WIC, you can participate in some of the classes online. Topics range on everything from “What to Expect Year to Year,” “The Baby Blues and Postpartum Depression” and “Smart Snacks for Children”
There are even entertainment programs for kids. A “Live Story with Zobey” teaches kids basic counting skills and how fruits and vegetables grow in a garden. It also encourages trying new foods.
The WIC classes are an excellent resource to learn how to be a better parent and how to care for yourself. To find out if you qualify for Texas WIC, apply online or visit a WIC Clinic. Find a Dallas-area WIC clinic with our directory.
