Country Crock is “Spreading the Love of Vegetables” and working to help parents and families get excited about eating their veggies. As a mother of three children this isn’t always the easiest of tasks. Country Crock has provided me with a great “Veggie Party Kit” to help me on my quest.
My kit included:
Country Crock samples Re-usable eco-friendly grocery tote “Today I Ate a Rainbow” kids’ calendar Vegetable chopper Kids aprons Gardening how-to kit Vegetable cookbook Coloring book and carrot pen
We broke into the kit and Honey was very excited about all the goodies. The apron is a perfect size for her and she loves to wear it when we cook. She also enjoys charting her fruits and veggies intake with the “Today I Ate a Rainbow” calendar.
Thankfully as far as Honey is concerned fruits and veggies are the bomb! She is the total opposite of her brothers who prefer pizza, corn dogs, and anything else processed. Honey loves steamed broccoli, apples, bananas, corn, etc. She will try almost anything once. Honey helped me create this “rainbow” of flavors using her calendar. The purpose of the calendar is to help encourage children to eat one item from each column/color. This gives them the essential vitamins and nutrients they need to nourish their growing bodies.
Honey is not stranger to the kitchen, she LOVES to help me cook (when I actually do). Her favorite taste are stirring things, adding items into a mixing bowl, and chopping things. We love our chopper as it is an easy and quick way to chop onions, nuts, and other veggies.
Country crock aims to help by making vegetables even more delicious. With 70% less saturated fat then butter, Country Crock ensures your veggies are not only nutritious but also delicious! (Butter contains 11g total fat, 7g saturated fat per serving) After the chopping, Honey sat down to eat some of her daily rainbow. She chose the broccoli and banana.
Even better then just cooking up your store bought veggies, is growing them at home. With our “Veggie party Kit” came a gardening how-to kit. It included six cute pots. In the pots we added a round tab that when water was added created dirt. We then planted tomatoes (yuck, sorry Country Crock not one of my fav’s) and banana peppers. All of the kids got in on the planting fun.
At Honey’s directions both her and the boys finished up their pots and took them outside for a light mist and some sun. You are suppose to water the pots daily and rotate them every couple of days so the veggies will grow straight. We don’t have veggies yet but Honey is keeping to her watering duties and doing so daily.
I really love how Country Crock is making eating and learning about veggies fun. This is right along my lines of how I teach my children as well. Unfortunately Honey seems to be the only one that heeds my advice when it comes to good eating habits. Country Crock is so committed to helping you and your family do the same that they are giving you the chance to take home your own veggie kit or better yet the Grand Prize of a $200 Amex gift card.
