One of the three strategies should be used to determine caloric requirements: Indirect calorimetry conditional recommendation, very low level of evidence. Peripheral PN should not be used, as it leads to inappropriate use of PN, has a high risk of phlebitis and loss of venous access sites, and generally provides inadequate nutrition therapy conditional recommendation, very low level of evidence.

Nutrition Therapy in the Adult Hospitalized Patient

Active participation by fathers is a great help in keeping WIC children healthy. Return to top of page. WIC provides nutrition education, nutritious foods, referrals to health and human services and breastfeeding support. Food benefits are issued for each client. Both fathers and mothers can receive and spend the benefits for their children.

Clients receive individual nutrition counseling and nutrition classes. Many clinics offer classes especially for children. Men who have family members participating in the program are welcome to attend nutrition classes. Clients receive encouragement and instruction in breastfeeding. In many cases, breastfeeding women are provided breast pumps free of charge. WIC offers food packages based on the latest nutrition guidelines. The WIC food packages offer fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk, yogurt, and baby food in addition to cereal, eggs, juice, peanut butter and beans.

Overall, WIC offers a variety of foods to help you make smart choices for you and your family. WIC refers clients to a variety of health and social services agencies and programs.

WIC staff can help clients find these services. This service is not available statewide, due to limited funding. Studies show that WIC plays an important role in improving birth outcomes and containing health-care costs.

WIC improves infant-feeding practices by actively promoting breastfeeding as the best method of feeding infants. WIC clients have improved rates of childhood immunizations and a regular source of health care. Inicio en espaƱol Text Size: Font Larger Font Smaller. Skip to content 3.
