About Alejandra

What do you find most exciting about working on the WIC team at Open Door?

I am passionate about nutrition education and it’s exciting to be able to work in this field. Working with the Open Door WIC team is a lovely experience and they’re a wonderful group to be around. 

Can you share something about the WIC program that people in the community might not know? 

I believe that everyone should have solid foundational knowledge about nutrients, recipes, and food access, all of which are available through WIC at Open Door.  WIC offers a variety of services, including breastfeeding support, and referrals to other essential services! 

 

If you could only give one piece of advice about nutrition to the general community, what would it be? 

Your relationship with food is one of the most important ones you will have. Adopting the mentality that there Is no such thing as “bad” or “good” foods, is essential! Everything works as long as it is consumed in moderation!
