Hoping to promote better eating habits among participants of the Women, Infants and Children program, the Coastal Health District announced this week it is sponsoring a contest "encouraging clients to find great-tasting recipes made with healthy food."
The contest, held in conjunction with National Nutrition Month, challenges WIC clients to create nutritious recipes using a variety of WIC-approved foods, such as dried or canned peas and beans.
Recipes will be accepted at participants' local WIC clinics in the nine-county health district, which includes Bryan, Liberty and Long counties, through March 31.
The top recipes using the most WIC foods will be cooked and tasted by Coastal Health District staff and winners will be announced on April 18.
The first place winner will receive a basket filled with kitchen items, while the second place winner will receive a WIC goody bag.
