Yoda says: Eat veggies you must! - Birds Eye Steamfresh #Giveaway Ends 8/22 @birdseye
Did you know that only 28% of dinners include a vegetable? When I read this I kind of stopped in my tracks and thought "really?". I just couldn't believe it. Then I sat and thought about our dinners over the past week and how many included vegetables. Fortunately I was not part of that 28% after I did my thinking! During the summer I find it easier to offer fresh vegetables to my family for meals because we always have our own garden. Plus they are so much cheaper in the stores when in season. But as summer winds down and vegetables aren't quite as abundant and cheap I will admit we tend to eat them less often. I have gotten into the habit though of buying frozen vegetables for those last minute needs. And for those really busy nights (especially when school and after school activities start) I also like to stock up on quick and easy to prepare meals with veggies already in them. Steamfresh meals from Birds Eye is actually one of my favorites when it comes to convenience, and flavor. My kids love the combinations of pasta and veggies so they are a hit with them too. Plus they are in smaller portions so each kid can pick their own dinner. Score one for this mom not having any dinner time arguments!
And of course it doesn't hurt that right now they are featuring Star Wars & Marvel characters on the packages. There's just something about special packaging that always seems to get my kids wanting to try new things.
Birds Eye is continuing to get kids of all ages excited to eat their veggies with Steamfresh sides featuring Disney character shaped pasta. This year, they’ve expanded the line to convince the older kids – and even the grown-ups – to eat better, too!
The new products include:
• Yoda shaped pasta & broccoli in white cheese sauce
• R2D2 shaped pasta & green beans in marinara sauce
• Spiderman shaped pasta & broccoli in yellow cheese sauce
• Avengers shaped whole grain pasta & peas in butter sauce
