Cooking Up Change in Chicago (CUCC)

NNHSC's registered dietitian provides both individual and group nutrition counseling and follow up to clients (adults and children) in need of nutritional therapy for weight management and other conditions to include but not limited to diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and HIV/AIDS.

Clinical Nutrition

NNHSC utilizes "Loving Support Through Peer Counseling: A Journey Together," a training curriculum developed by USDA Food and Nutrition Service, to implement the peer counseling program that provides WIC participants the education and support needed to assist in achieving their goals surrounding breastfeeding. Combining peer counseling with the ongoing breastfeeding promotion efforts in WIC has the potential to significantly impact breastfeeding initiation, duration and exclusivity rates among WIC participants.

Breastfeeding Peer Counseling Program

The WIC program provides nutrition education, nutritious foods, breastfeeding support and referrals to health care and other social services to infants, children under the age of five, pregnant women, breastfeeding women and postpartum women. Please call or visit one of our WIC locations nearest you.
