Our healthy eating habits have still stuck with her and now that she is a mother, she is passing on the healthy eating to our 3 1/2 year old grand daughter. When it comes to Princess Gia, she loves her fruits and veggies and will eat those over candy...any day of the week! Yeah!
I know some families struggle with picky eaters and sometimes those families need to get creative in the kitchen by sneaking in vegetables and fruits into the dishes they make for their families.
Over Thanksgiving, I decided to use some Del Monte products to "Add Some Garden" to our holiday meal! I used their Fresh Cut Whole Kernel Corn as a side dish, I used their Fresh Cut Green Beans in a delicious green bean casserole, folded in their Lite Sliced Peaches and Lite Sliced Pears Halves into a gelatin mold for dessert and next week I will be using their canned Diced Tomatoes when I make a big pot of chili.
