ENTER TO WIN: $50 AmEx Card To Re-write Dinnertime Rules with Birds Eye® Veggies

Birds Eye Nick Kids Veggies

Birds Eye® and Nickelodeon Help Kids Eat Healthier By Eating More Veggies!

Ninety percent of kids don’t eat the recommended amount of veggies each day and summer is an ideal time to try a new approach. Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat star Jennette McCurdy is on a mission to put the play back on the plate. She’s teamed up with Birds Eye Vegetables for a multi-week challenge for families to seize the fun and Rewrite the Dinnertime Rules leading up Nickelodeon’s 10th annual Worldwide Day of Play this fall.

In addition to playing with their veggies and enjoying more relaxed family dinners, this summer kids and parents can also enter for a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to join Jennette McCurdy at Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play flagship event. Through this campaign families have an opportunity to learn new ideas that could help shape a lifetime of healthy eating. Each week kids can follow along online at Nick.com/BirdsEye for veggie-themed games and exclusive behind-the-scenes videos with McCurdy. Parents should visit www.BirdsEye.com for easy advice on getting kids to eat their veggies, more dinner “rules” and recipe ideas created for and tested by kids. The sweepstakes deadline is August 26 at noon.

“I’m excited that kids get to be in charge of the dinner rules this summer!” McCurdy says.” I’m passionate about kids eating their veggies and can’t wait to see the ideas from families out there.”

To read more about this wonderful campaign and to see pics from the event, check out this previous post from Lady and the Blog.

    As sad as this is, I have to add cheese to broccoli to get them to eat it

  9. We usually add vegetables to casseroles to make them more appetizing to the kids. Corn on the plate doesn’t look good to them , but corn in a chicken enchilada casserole does.

  10. Give them an even amount of each food on the menu–when that is gone they choose what else they want. That way they eat the veggies, too.

  11. I add veggies into smoothie
