One of my favorite parts of blogging is the wonderful companies I get to work with and share with you. Last year at Blissdom I had the opportunity to chat with the people from Bird’s Eye. I am happy to partner with them to share a fun recipe with you today and host a little giveaway as well.
Here’s a little about what Bird’s Eye has been up to lately:
This year, Birds Eye set out on a mission to inspire a new generation of vegetable lovers and became first company to go straight to the source, kids, to change the conversation about vegetables. In partnership with Nickelodeon and iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy, the goal was to empower kids’ creativity and encourage them to share their inspiration with others. From this partnership came over 16,000 new recipes submitted by kids!
With Halloween just around the corner I want to offer you a different take on the typical Halloween treats that Braylen loves! Anytime I can get BK to try new veggies, we consider it a win, even if I have to be a little more creative. The Veggie Martian made her laugh AND eat her vegetables. That’s a win at our house, for sure!
But more than just getting children to eat vegetables, Bird’s Eye wants to inspire children to get in the kitchen and get creative. To come up with fun and exciting recipe ideas and to lend a hand to busy mothers as they prepare dinner for the family. The Bird’s Eye Steamfresh is excellent for this purpose. No knives or hot stoves required equals more independence and creativity in the kitchen, from the kiddo’s.
You can visit Bird’s Eye for even more fun creations and recipe ideas featuring Bird’s Eye Steamfresh products to get your children into the kitchen and eating their veggies!
Check out our Veggie Martian below, that we made Tuesday, just in time for Halloween:
