May is Food Allergy Action Month! Lots of kids find ways to eat the food they love, even if they have specific food allergies. Oftentimes, it takes a little extra effort to make sure your child is getting enough vitamins and nutrients if they can’t consume dairy, eggs, or other nutrient-rich foods.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! 🇲🇽 Some ways to celebrate Mexican American culture are:

→ Create a traditional Mexican meal or snack with your little one. (You can even use WIC-approved ingredients, like 100% corn tortillas or avocados!)

→ Make a Mexican flag using paper or colored pencils during craft time.

→ Help your little one read a book about Mexican American culture (you can find some great ones here: https://www.steamsational.com/9-fun-resources-for-studying-cinco-de-mayo/).
→ Help your little one learn the history of Cinco de Mayo and its origins. Being educated about the meaning behind the holiday is an excellent way to respect the culture (learn more here: https://www.bhg.com/holidays/traditions/celebrate-cinco-de-mayo-respectfully/).

Having trouble with a food item you thought could be purchased with WIC benefits? Keep these things in mind:

✻ Ask for assistance. If the cashier is unable to help, ask for the store manager.

✻ The store can’t force the cash register system to allow eWIC payment for foods that come up as not WIC approved.

✻ Select another WIC approved brand or variety.

✻ WIC is not able to repay you for any food you choose to buy with another form of payment.

✻ Keep any receipts and take a picture of the food or write down the UPC barcode.

✻ Contact your local WIC office as soon as possible to let them know.

WIC is here to help you get healthy, delicious food for your little ones, so contact your local agency with any questions! You got this, mama! 💪🏾 #WICMomStrong https://wicmomstrong.com/

It's finally getting warmer which means it's time to get outside! An easy way to move more and watch less is by going for a family walk. You can even make it more fun by playing games while walking: hop over cracks, find treasures such as rocks, sticks, leaves, bugs, and butterflies.

Spring is here, and so are salad greens! Eating salad greens in season will make them taste more fresh and flavorful to you and to your child. Not to mention, they are an excellent source of vitamin K, which helps stop cuts and scrapes from bleeding too much. Here are some easy steps to creating flavor packed salad:

1. Start with Greens- One type or a mix. 2 cups of leafy greens is a serving

2. Add Some Color- vegetables or fruit (fresh, canned, or dried)

3. Pick a Low-Fat Protein- it helps you feel full

4. Dress it Lightly- dressings can add calories; use a small amount; try reduced-fat versions or make your own.
