The #GreenMySchool Program Pairs Celebrities with Schools to Create Sustainable Gardens and Teach the Importance of Plant-based Nutrition.
Birds Eye® frozen vegetables partnered with Environmental Media Association’s (EMA) “#Greenmyschool” program with a garden planting by Constance Zimmer with students from schools in Santa Ana. I had the wonderful opportunity to be part of this campaign too. It was my birthday so what an excellent gift!
Constance Zimmer is the star of Lifetime’s UnREAL, well known for her roles on Boston Legal, Entourage and House of Cards. Meeting Constance was my favorite part of the day! She is a wealth of info, and she gave me a tip that I know our readers will appreciate!
To get kids to eat their PEAS….serve, them frozen.
I tried this with my 12-year old! She loves frozen peas now! My kids have grown up eating vegetables but I don’t like the percentage and so let’s change that and get the word out …EAT YOUR VEGGIES!
SOUP made from veggies from the garden for everyone!
Birds Eye and EMA is doing their part by aiming to instill the importance of eating vegetables among students and their families at the schools in which the gardens are created. This past year we have been changing how we eat at home, and Birds Eye is our main source of vegetables. We used to eat canned veggies (I grew up on can foods) but now we ONLY use frozen or fresh. Birds Eye vegetables are flash frozen within 6 hours of harvest, locking in nutrients. So that means that frozen vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh.
