Nutrition Info is More Accessible Than Ever
We built WISE with parent preferences in mind.
We surveyed 806 parents with low income.
More than 60% used multiple technologies, such as computers, smart phones, and internet, on a daily basis.
Plus, they were interested in receiving nutrition and parenting info via technology.
That’s why WISE includes a technology-based informal curriculum that delivers messages to parents about healthy eating and parent support.
