Produce for Kids and Kroger Giftcard Giveaway

Are you like most moms, wanting your kids to eat healthy foods?
I know we struggle in our household to get our two boys to eat more produce, especially when they are so finicky.
Well today I am here to share with you an awesome campaign by the folks at Kroger.
It is called Produce for Kids!!


Produce for Kids® just launched its annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign with 16 major supermarket chains across the country, including your local Kroger stores, to help raise money for Texas Children’s Hospital and other local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®.  

Now through July 24th, thanks to the annual Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign hosted by Kroger and Produce for Kids, the more produce shoppers add to their shopping lists the more hope they can give to local children. 
 Celebrating a milestone 10th birthday in 2012, Produce for Kids is excited to kick off this year’s campaign with a new partnership with Sprout® and LazyTownTM. During the campaign, Produce for Kids will offer shoppers collectible Ideal MealsTM – quick and easy healthy meal ideas, which are free and can be found in displays featuring LazyTown characters from the popular, health-focused, children’s series airing exclusively in the U.S. on 24-hour preschool television channel, Sprout.
Ideal Meals offer shoppers chef-created/nutritionist-approved easy solutions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. Featuring fresh fruits and vegetables as the main ingredients, Ideal Meals are great for busy families who crave fast meal options that don’t require stopping at the local drive-thru.
Below are some delicious summer-inspired Ideal Meals perfect to serve as healthful and fun dessert alternatives at any upcoming picnics or BBQs you may be attending:
