With ONE, you can recommend lesson to
reinforce learning after a counseling session!
ONE’s self-paced nutrition education lessons are modern and easy for the
participant to complete, and complement the core nutrition and breastfeeding education topics
that WIC Staff would use on ONE during a counseling session or appointment. While using ONE,
WIC Staff can recommend a ONE lesson topic based on the participant’s needs and goals,
further personalizing and enhancing the WIC experience.
Designed with behavior change theory and best practices from plain language and health literacy, the lessons on ONE guide participants towards goal setting in a conversational format. They blend emotion-based messages with basic skills and practical tips, and offer examples of how other families have made healthy changes. They are designed to be completed in
5-8 minutes and cover 1-2 objectives, and provide clear and relevant “how to” actions to accomplish a change or goal.
Participants have the option to complete short nutrition
education lessons between in-person or remote appointments
as part of their online secondary nutrition education requirement to receive WIC benefits. Lessons can be completed on a mobile device, tablet or computer. Participants can return to a class at
a later date if it is not completed all at one time.
Lesson completions and the goals
or next steps identified by the participant can be easily referenced
by WIC Staff, and can be reinforced
at future appointments to support
the participant’s confidence in his
or her ability to successfully
perform a behavior.
Additionally, lesson completion information from ONE can be integrated into an agency’s MIS system, reducing staff workload
and streamlining secondary
nutrition education and benefit issuance procedures.
