Nutrition Education Resources

Welcome to the nutrition education resources section of the Nutrition Services Branch. On this page, you will find a multitude of materials that can be used with North Carolina families participating in WIC and CACFP. For many of these resources, there are both English and Spanish versions. Items are grouped based on the intended audience.

The USDA Nondiscrimination Statement for the WIC and CACFP Programs has changed. We are in the process of updating all of our printed materials.
