Eat your vegetables
Birds Eye frozen vegetables will team up with Disney in an effort to educate children on the importance of vegetables in a well-balanced diet. The “Step Up To The Plate” program will promote the great taste of vegetables and the benefits they provide.
Rita Ferro, a Disney executive, said, “Disney has a time-honored commitment to entertaining kids and families, and that commitment extends to supporting parents in raising healthy, happy kids.”
Today, only 10 percent of children in the United States eat the amount of vegetables recommended in the USDA’s MyPlate guidelines.
Parents can use #ILikeVeggies to share their ideas for getting kids to enjoy vegetables.
