I am excited for the opportunity to focus on something near and dear to my heart – healthy eating for children and families alike. I work very hard to try to ensure our little family eats a well balanced diets full of healthy foods. While juggling work, chores, family, blogging…that’s not always easy but it is one of my top priorities! I am excited to share that I will be participating as an Advisory Member to Produce For Kids.
Produce for Kids® (PFK) is dedicated to educating families on the benefits of healthy eating and supporting worthy causes for children. PFK educates shoppers about healthy eating through a promotional campaign in the produce department of grocery stores across the U.S. In 2010, PFK added Ideal Meals™ to their program, which are chef-created/nutritionist-approved complete meal solutions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
Since its creation in 2002 by Shuman Produce Inc., PFK has raised more than $3.1 million for children’s non-profit organizations including Children’s Miracle Network® Hospitals and PBS KIDS®. The PFK program has been embraced by the produce industry and covers retailers in more than 24 states and incorporates suppliers in every major produce category. PFK also provides elementary school teachers with educational materials and fun interactive activities designed to teach kids about healthy eating.
