"Enjoyable family meals benefit children's physical, mental, social, and
academic well-being. They help build strong families, raise
competent eaters, and create memories to last a lifetime.
And, they can easily be delicious, nutritious, and fun."

The What Incredible Choices Toolkit was created by Dayle Hayes, MS, RD for the Montana WIC Program with the use of Infrastructure Funds from USDA. The Toolkit is full of guidance, information, materials and activities for staff to use in promoting “the original fast food” (those delicious, flavorful, crunchy, juicy, sweet, nutritious fruits and vegetables) with their WIC participants.  The Toolkit highlights fresh fruits and vegetables which can be purchased with the Montana Fruit and Vegetable Benefit and the Montana Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program Benefit.  These benefits may be used at authorized farmers and grocery stores. Materials are available in color and grayscale.  For copies of all items, click here.
