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. How did you learn to cook?

(Submit by December 2nd or before).

Were you always in the kitchen helping your parent(s) prepare meals? Or perhaps you watched a few cooking shows on television that inspired you to try it in your kitchen. Did you teach yourself and learn the hard way? Do you have any good stories or tips for someone who might be just learning to cook? We would love to hear about your cooking adventures!

Are you interested in learning more about cooking and meal planning? Check out our Planning Simple Meals And Snacks category. It has many lessons filled with lots of great information!


2. What are your favorite recipes?

(Submit by December 2nd or before).

The cooler weather is coming in many parts of the country, meaning food shifts from Summer recipes to Fall and Winter recipes. Or maybe, you live somewhere where it stays warm? Do your food choices still shift because of the change in months? Whatever your reasons, it does feel good to fall back on a recipe you haven't made in a while. We would love to hear about your tried and true favorite recipes. Tell us the ingredients, the process, and why they are your favorite! Sharing the love of food makes the world a better place!

Maybe you need a little help with your brainstorming. We invite you to check out our Health eKitchen, where you will find over 250 recipes that will make you want to put your apron on and get cooking - or not. . .there are No Cook recipes there too!


3. Tell us about your holiday food traditions and memories.

(Submit by December 2nd or before).

As the holidays approach, you and your family will probably spend much time in the kitchen. Food can connect us with loved ones from other generations during the holiday season. Food aromas, sweet treats, and savory and comforting dishes offer a way to bring about good memories and make time stand still for a moment. Sharing these food traditions with your children keeps the cycle going. Do you have a favorite recipe your grandmother made at Christmas? Or maybe you remember a side dish your creative Aunt would bring that had a funny name? We would love to hear the stories about your traditions and food memories. Or tell us about how you make an effort to create memories with your children that they can share when they are adults.

Do you want some inspiration? Check out our free lesson titled Making Mealtime A Family Time. You can find it in the Feeding Your 2 to 5-Year-Old category.


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!
