We all know that adding more fruits and vegetables to our diets is a good thing, right? (That’s where you nod and agree with me, by the way.) But as moms, sometimes it feels like the rest of the world is conspiring against us when it comes to encouraging healthy habits with our kids. That’s why when I hear about brands who are willing to support us in our quest to get our kids to eat more veggies I jump at the chance to support them. That’s why I’m thrilled to be partnering with the Produce for Kids campaign for this post!
The Produce for Kids campaign is currently running through July and offers in store and online meal suggestions and solutions for families who are trying to revamp their eating habits and make them healthier. Stores make this even more fun by holding in store demonstrations and events featuring characters from Cloudy withe a Chance of Meatballs 2.
Active since 2002, this is the campaign’s 13th year. They have raised over $5 million for children’s charities and continue to raise funds to benefit charities that support children, including Produce for Kids’ primary philanthropic partner Feeding America as well as other local community children’s organizations.
You can learn more about Produce for Kids at their official website, www.ProduceForKids.com. On the site you can find more than 200 registered dietitian-approved and family-tested recipes, meal planning tools, grocery store specific campaign details, and healthy tips from real parents. You can even share your own favorite healthy recipes using the hashtag #produceforkids!
Grocery retail partners participating in the Produce for Kids campaign include: ACME Markets; Associated Wholesale Grocers’ Major Savings, Advantage, Independent, Country Mart, Homeland and United divisions; Meijer Stores; Niemann Foods, Inc.; Price Chopper; Publix Super Markets; and Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc’s Pick n’ Save, Copps and Metro Market divisions so keep your eyes open at your own store.
The folks at Produce for Kids asked me to share my favorite recipe and that proved to be a bit trickier than I thought it would be – they all looked so amazing! I finally settled on two.
As an elementary teacher, I will always have a soft spot for Dr. Seuss and this recipe for Green Eggs and Ham is perfect for any morning.
And since the Fourth of July is right around the corner (and I always love berries and yogurt anyways) this Fireworks Parfait is my idea of a perfect breakfast.
