There is a huge opportunity to share WIC expertise and information with moms and other caregivers online - nutrition and breastfeeding tips, agency opening hours, and more. Moms are looking for this information, and WIC has it. Social media is one way to meet moms where they are and to make sure they’re getting the best information possible. But adding social media to your workload isn’t always simple. From departmental policies to staff training, there are a lot of obstacles keeping WIC from fully engaging online.
