Birds Eye is partnering with Environmental Media Association to inspire kids and families to eat more vegetables. They are helping students plant vegetable gardens with celebrities in their hometowns. I have partnered with them on this sponsored post to bring you news of their latest project.
Everyone knows they should eat their vegetables simply because they are good for you but few people get enough of them. Birds Eye knows that making vegetables convenient to buy, easier to store and quicker to prepare will help families eat healthier. They have been helping families get their veggies on the table and into the family diet for over 100 years. It doesn’t matter what season it is, Birds Eye frozen vegetables are always available. With so many different varieties there is something for every palate.
Certainly we know that making vegetables an intricate part of every meal every single day can have a positive impact on diabetes, heart disease, cancer, obesity and so much more. What we often don’t consider is that when we eat more vegetables and less meat, we are helping the environment. You see this allows the farmers to be able to feed more people using less resources (land, water and energy). Fewer chemicals are used and fewer greenhouse gasses are released. No wonder this project is so important to Birds Eye…by helping people incorporate veggies more often the result may help fight disease, feed the world and save the planet! Who knew eating your vegetables was so important?!
Birds Eye is helping spread this message by teaming up with the Environmental Media Association. The EMA believes that the entertainment community in in a position to be able to influence people about environmental awareness. They utilize the entertainment industry in projects like these to teach people about environmental issues. The end result is that people are motivated to do something about it instead of sit back and let these conditions continue.
Recently, Birds Eye was with Constance Zimmer in Santa Ana, CA planting a garden at the Heritage Museum of Orange County, which hosts educational activities for students from several local schools, including agricultural and culinary education.
The #GreenMySchool program helps teach the students not only the importance of vegetable nutrition but also helps them understand the environmental connection. Simply helping students plant a vegetable garden with celebrities is having an impact.
Did You Know?
• Birds Eye vegetables are grown on family farms, some of which have been harvesting for Birds Eye going back multiple generations.
• Their veggies ripen in the ﬁeld, allowing them to reach maximum nutritional value before they are harvested.
• Birds Eye vegetables are ﬂash frozen within 6 hours of harvest, locking in nutrients. That means that frozen veggies are just as nutritious as fresh! •
Only 28% of American’s dinners include vegetables and nine out of 10 children do not eat the recommended daily amount of vegetables. By educating children about the variety, taste and ease of veggies, Birds Eye is working to turn that around.
• You can ﬁnd more information about Birds Eye’s process, products and recipes at www.BirdsEye.com.
Birds Eye is dedicated to making a difference in the United States where it comes to vegetable consumption whether it be fresh or frozen. Making vegetables a part of every meal is the aim of Birds Eye’s mission and their partnership with EMA magnifies this purpose.
