A friend recently admonished “Your kids eat peppers?!?!?!” while having a lunch time play date. Absolutely! Fruits and vegetables are an essential for everyone. It is incredibly awesome that Produce for Kids® (PFK) feels the same and promotes the benefits of healthy eating. You may have spotted PBK’s promotional materials in the produce department of your local grocery store (I have noticed these displays at Publix). Produce for Kids has raised more than $3.1 million for children’s non-profit organizations including Children’s Miracle Network® Hospitals and PBS KIDS®.
Produce for Kids® is gearing up for its largest-ever annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign and working with 16 supermarket grocery store chains across the country to help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network-affiliated hospitals.
From May through July, participating fresh fruit and vegetable companies will make a donation to local children’s hospitals based on sales of their fresh produce items at participating grocery stores. The more items purchased, the more local children’s hospitals benefit. The participating grocery stores will also feature the Ideal Meals™ program from Produce for Kids. It’s that simple!
Supermarket partners participating in the Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign include:Acme Markets; Kroger’s Texas division, King Soopers and City Market stores; Price Chopper (New England area), GIANT and Martin’s Food Stores, Giant Landover, Stop & Shop; Meijer Stores; Publix Super Markets; Homeland and other Independent Grocers of Oklahoma.
Spice up your night and cook with your kids once (or twice) a week. Be sure to pick on one of the Produce for Kids’ Ideal Meal cards for quick and easy healthy meal ideas. When you cook together and are engaged as a family in the kitchen you may even notice that you start to eat healthier. Food doesn’t taste quite so icky after kids have helped prepare it!
