WIC Preschool Activity Sheets
|The WIC preschool activity
sheets are intended for preschool aged WIC participants, in
particular 2-4 year olds. These may be used to keep the child
occupied while WIC staff perform the WIC nutrition assessment,
nutrition education and/or other WIC nutrition services with
the parent or caretaker of the child.|
Since the 2-4 year old age group is not developmentally able to comprehend nutrition messages intended for adults, such as those found in the 2005 U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs), the focus of the activity sheets is to perform activities appropriate for this age based on information from the Department of Education. These activity sheets include basic preschool skills such as counting, identifying shapes, identifying letters in the alphabet, matching alike items (food), and identifying objects (with emphasis on fruits and vegetables). The materials are available in PDF format in both English and Spanish. They are appropriate for printing in color or black and white by WIC State agencies.
If a format other than PDF is needed, email the WIC Works Resource System Team.
