Birds Eye® Is Putting the Play Back on the Plate to Help Kids Eat Healthier by Enjoying Their Veggies
Birds Eye® is going straight to the source, kids, to show kids how fun eating their veggies can be. For the second year in a row, we’re partnering with Nickelodeon™, the number one entertainment brand for kids, and Sam & Cat star Jennette McCurdy as our veggie-loving ambassador. Together we're on a mission to put the play back on the plate to get kids to eat more veggies. We are running a multi-week challenge on BirdsEye.com, starting on July 22nd, for families to seize the fun and Rewrite the Dinnertime Rules leading up to the 10th annual Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play on September 21. While playing with their veggies and enjoying more relaxed family dinners, families will also be vying for the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Worldwide Day of Play in New York to share their ideas and celebrate with Jennette. The content deadline is August 26 at noon. While the Birds Eye Web site contains easy advice geared to parents, kids can enjoy the veggie-loving fun at the Nickelodeon Web site (nick.com/birdseye).
Beyond this partnership, Birds Eye® has pledged a three-year commitment to the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), which works with the private sector and PHA Honorary Chair First Lady Michelle Obama to end the childhood obesity epidemic. The First Lady has lauded Birds Eye's innovative approach to inspiring kids and helping support moms, saying she is "proud that Birds Eye and the Partnership for a Healthier America have come together to make the healthy choice the easy choice for families."
Let's Feed Kids Better in America
We're passionate about vegetables. We believe everyone should have access to them at any time, especially our kids. That's why Birds Eye® teamed up with Share Our Strength® to create the "Feed Kids Better" campaign. We believe that inspiring kids' taste for vegetables is one step toward helping them lead healthy lives.
Share our Strength®, a national nonprofit, connects children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. Through its No Kids Hungry® Campaign, Share Our Strength is ending childhood hunger in America by 2015. Visit Strength.org to get involved in the No Kid Hungry Campaign.
