Eat healthy on a budget
  • Any fruits can be used, but be sure to include oranges and bananas, which are good sources of folate. Folate helps form a healthy spine and brain in a developing baby.
  • When buying canned fruit, choose fruit packed in water or 100 percent fruit juice instead of light or heavy syrup, which adds sugar and extra calories.
  • Fresh or frozen fruit without added sugars can be purchased using WIC cash value vouchers (CVV).
  • Buy fresh fruits in season when are usually cheaper and taste better.
  • Try store brands of yogurt, which are usually cheaper and taste the same as name brands.
  • Fruit salad also makes a healthy dessert for any meal.
Be food safe
  • Wash hands, utensils and surfaces before and after preparing food.
  • Rinse fresh fruit thoroughly under cool running water. Rinse even if the skins of the fruit will not be eaten.
  • Avoid buying fresh fruits that have scrapes or bruises. Any breaks in the skin of the fruit allow bacteria to get inside.
