A few weeks ago, we told you about a new program called “Step Up To The Plate”, a partnership between Birds Eye & Disney to promote healthy eating.  We try to keep veggies on the plate at lunch & dinnertime, but sometimes, it’s just not fun! This is where Disney is “stepping up” to help out!

Our family decided we are up for this challenge, so we headed to the store to see what Birds Eye products we could find. There was a vast variety – plain vegetables, vegetables with light sauce, the list was endless! Not quite ready to try Purple Broccoli Smoothies (yes, we will, eventually-stay tuned!), we opted for a bag of Birds Eye Steamfresh Mixed Vegetables. This is advertised as perfectly cooking in the bag, so that definitely makes cooking vegetables with dinner easier. But would it pass the test?

The bag did like it said. It cooked well in the microwave (notice my clean microwave? That doesn’t happen often. We are *real* , I promise). The vegetables were crispy & tasted fresh. We were impressed. In less than 5 minutes, we had hot, steam fresh, crispy & tasty veggies with dinner!

But don’t just take my word for it…go try them yourself!

Stay tuned for more creative ways to serve veggies…I am working up the courage to add broccoli to a smoothie.
