WIC Online Nutrition Education

If your next WIC appointment is a nutrition class, you can take the class online using your phone, tablet or computer. Visit the New Jersey WIC Program and create an account using your 9-digit household ID number. 

There are a variety of topics such as "Baby Behavior", "Physical Activity", ""Calcium" and many more! When you take the class online, you can skip the class at WIC, wait for your checks to be printed and reduce your wait time at the clinic. If you are unsure if you are eligible to take the class online, please call the office.
