We all need variety in what and how we eat. And the best way to get that is through new ideas for using the same old foods to prepare nutritious meals and snacks that are appealing to our family. That's why we built Health eKitchen, a recipe library that provides ongoing ideas, education, and support associated with preparing and cooking an extensive array of WIC approved foods.
It's more than just a bunch of recipes and videos
Health eKitchen is a curated library. It's a storage vehicle of the best simple, yet healthy recipes that focus on WIC approved ingredients. Sure, a client can go to the web and try and find a recipe that might work for the family. But is it nutritious? Does it capitalize on WIC approved foods already in their pantry? Clients told us their #1 interest is in finding recipes that will work. We listened.
It's designed to utilize food benefits to their fullest
We have scoured the web and sought out input from our partner WIC clinics and have brought together the best collection of recipes and videos available that address all WIC food benefits. What to do with fruits? How to prepare a dish with whole grains? What to do with tuna to make it something kids will eat? It's all there.
It's a way to continue moving toward active behavior change
We know 40% of our wichealth.org users are return visitors. That means they are coming back to the site to learn more. Not because they have to or because they receive additional food benefits. They come back because they want to. And Health eKitchen is available right on their wichealth.org dashboard.
