It's a slow day in WIC today with all the usual suspects.
1. A mom who is giving her 5 month old sweet tea, in a bottle, every day.
2. A doctor who told one of my moms that she should give her 2 month old fruits and veggies.
3. A 3 year old with rotting teeth, who's mom had NO idea it was from the 6 cups of juice a day.
The clients I see each day never cease to amaze me with their stories, and the foods they put into their bodies and their children. All I can ask for is that I am making some kind of impact on them by giving them my knowledge of the body and food.
After all, Knowledge equals POWER!
