WIC Staff Food Shopping and Consumption Habits Survey
In January-March 2008, California WIC Program conducted a statewide survey of local agency WIC staff to learn what foods they purchase and consume, the reasons for their choices, what might influence them to make healthier choices, their opinions about upcoming food package changes, and their preferences for education and training tools and methods to help them implement the changes. 1,801 staff representing 89% of the 82 local WIC agencies voluntarily completed this self-administered survey using Vanguard Vista, an on-line survey tool. Local agencies were given the capability to run the statewide report as well as reports customized for their own agency or WIC site.
The survey data provide valuable information on current practices, opinions, and attitudes of the WIC staff relevant to the WIC foods and the anticipated changes to the food packages. The results will inform the California WIC program in development of training materials for local agencies. In addition, local WIC administrators will be able to target staff training effectively using the local data.
