WIC Meals of the Month: Pumping Iron
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 recipes using foods that are good sources of iron and vitamin C - critical nutrients for growth and development, a healthy immune system, and potentially protecting against lead exposure (check out Eye on Nutrition: Iron and Vitamin C).
In addition to the recipes below - courtesy of Laren from the Mountain Plains Regional Office and Emily from Maryland WIC (thanks Laren and Emily!) - more recipes that pack a punch of iron include Eggs Over Kale and Sweet Potato Grits, Asian Mango Chicken Wraps, and more (see the buttons to the right!).
Looking for a vitamin C charge but want something a bit more than a single piece of fruit? How about this versatile Creamy Fruit Salad.
