Snippets

NEW! We are looking for very short (100 words or less) guest snippets from WIC participants on the following topic:

1. What does a family mealtime look like for your family?

(Submit by May 21st or before).


Describe the time and place you share mealtimes in 100 words or less. We would also love to see a photo! We know a mealtime can be shared just about anywhere, and it's likely your family is unique. Please share your ideas with us! Your short snippet and photo could be featured in one of our upcoming lessons!


Looking for some additional ideas? We have them! 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.


 

Blog Posts

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

1. What do you do to make sure your baby sleeps safely?

(Submit by May 21st or before).


How have you made the A, B, C's of Safe Sleep work for your baby? (Alone, on their back, and in a crib). We would love to hear about your experiences with these important safety precautions. Tell us about your child's safe sleeping space. Share your safety tips with other parents. Your experience may make all the difference for another WIC family. We would also love to see your precious sleeping baby in their safe sleep space.


Want to learn more about creating a safe sleep space or how to support your baby's sleep? Check out the lessons titled: Help You Baby Sleep Safe and Sound or Understanding Your Newborn: Sleep, Crying, And Cues.

 

2. How do you involve your kids in your mealtime routine?

(Submit by May 21st or before).

Food prep and meal times provide great opportunities for families to spend time together. Whether it's planning the meals and snacks for the week, shopping for the ingredients, shucking the corn, or sharing the responsibilities of clean up - it always makes for quality time. How do you include your young ones? Do you have favorite meals you like to prepare together? Do you have good tricks when food shopping with children? Please share how you get your kids excited about the deliciousness of food and togetherness! You are your child's first and most important role model.


We have more ideas to get you thinking. Take our Making Mealtime A Family Time lesson 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!


 

What we are looking for: Short Videos - Cooking

We are looking for short videos (1 minute or less) from WIC participants on the following topic:


How do you use your WIC benefits?


You know how it goes, suddenly you look into your pantry and see 3 jars of peanut butter or multiplying boxes of cereal! You aren't going to let one bit of your benefits go to waste! So, what do you do with the excess? What recipes are you making? How do you make good use of all the WIC ingredients without wasting any? Maybe you have three ways you use peanut butter or recipes that use a lot of milk? In a short video format, show us how you make the best use of your WIC food ingredients. We would love to see your ideas and share them with other families who are looking for ways to use their benefits fully. Your video might make an appearance in an upcoming lesson!


Requirements:

  • Less than a minute long

  • Provide written recipe (quantity of ingredients and directions)

  • Include a written bio of yourself (3 sentences or so)

  • Record the video with a horizontal screen shot shown below
