Recipes to cook, eat and repeat
WIC Meals of the Month (MOM) is an opportunity for the WIC community to share recipes of their own, or from their favorite resources. This WIC MOM features fiber - an important nutrient woven into and throughout a healthy diet. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans consider fiber to be a nutrient of public health concern for those 2 years of age and older since low intakes are associated with health concerns.
Fiber-rich foods are also good sources of other nutrients, but more than 90 percent of women don’t meet the recommended fiber intakes.
Check out healthier takes on comfort foods, like the Beyond Basic Grilled Cheese (below). Pair it with a some Sensational Foil-Pack Vegetables, or a side Broccoli and Everything Salad for a hearty, fiber-filled filling meal.
Looking to satisfy a sweet tooth? This Microwave Apple offers the flavor of apple pie without all the work - or fat and sugar! Try no-bake recipes like the Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bites (below) or Honey Milk Balls that call for a only handful of ingredients. Bonus - these recipes also offer protein and other nutrients, like calcium or fiber.
