New guest blogger opportunities!

Consider becoming a guest blogger for wichealthblog.org! Your words of wisdom will be shared with our subscribers. Unfortunately, we are not able to pay guest bloggers for posts at this time. But, this is a great chance to share your knowledge about nutrition, parenting, and healthy living with our supportive and friendly community of readers. Please note that submissions may be edited for clarity and grammar.


What we are looking for:

We are looking for short (500 words or less) guest posts from WIC participants on the following topics:


1. Summertime means Farmers Market time! Tell us about your Farmers Market experiences.

(Submit by August 12th or before).


Shopping at a Farmers Market or roadside stand is a great way to get fresh produce, support your local community, and have fun with your family! What do your kids love most about going to the Farmers Market or roadside stand? Do you have favorite foods, vendors, or other market experiences to share? Some vendors and markets partner with WIC to provide additional benefits. How do you stretch your dollar while shopping there? Please tell us all about your local Farmers Market!

 

2. How does your family make mealtime a family time?

(Submit by August 12th or before).

Sitting down with your family and eating together is a beautiful way to bond. It can be a time to relax, recharge, laugh, tell stories, and catch up. How do you make family meal time work for your family? Do you have weekly traditions? Do you eat together every night or a few nights - or do you have other family mealtime ideas you can share? We would love to hear what you do to make mealtime a family time.


To learn more, check out our lesson titled Making Mealtime A Family Time found in the Feeding Your 2 to 5-Year-Old category.

 

3. How has the baby formula shortage or the peanut butter recall impacted your family?

(Submit by August 12th or before).

How has the baby formula shortage or the peanut butter recall impacted your family? Human milk and baby formula provide essential nutrients that support the development of infants worldwide. Though not as essential, peanut butter is a pantry staple offering a great and easy protein source for kids and adults alike. Thankfully, both baby formula and peanut butter are WIC-approved. Where have you turned to get support and education about the shortages and recalls? Tell us about your experiences and how this time in history has affected you.

 

To submit your post, simply write an email to wichealthblog@gmail.com and attach a Word Document or a link to a Google doc. Be sure to also include a short bio (about 3 sentences is fine) and a picture of yourself, if you would like to share one. In addition, we encourage you to send topic-related images of your kids in action - these add such a great personal touch to your post!
