Del Monte - Add Some Garden - to Your Meals!


I am very fortunate that when our daughter was a little girl, she was never a picky eater. I contribute a lot of that by always offering her a well-balanced diet that included many fruits and vegetables. We rarely fed our daughter junk food, fast food and all of those other things that seem popular with kids today.

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.

Those families can now get help online thanks to Del Monte and their new Facebook *Add Some Garden* Contest where you can get helpful advice, tips, recipes, etc. Plus you can share some of your own tips & ideas too! During the contest phase, you can enter to win some really cool prizes and the grand prize is a wonderful trip to take a culinary tour! Value of prize $10,000. How cool is that? Totally cool! Each week you will get the opportunity to submit up to 10 tips on how you add some garden to your meal with Del Monte.

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.

Information You Need to Know:

•Del Monte canned fruits, vegetables, and tomatoes contain the same essential nutrients as fresh varieties.
•Del Monte fruits and vegetables are grown in the best growing regions of the United States, providing consumers with a consistently quality product.
•The majority of Del Monte products are picked at the peak of ripeness and canned on the same day, to ensure nutrients and flavor are locked in.

“Add Some Garden” Facebook Contest

•Visit the Del Monte Facebook page from November 5th through February 4th to enter the Del Monte “Add Some Garden” contest for the chance to win one of the many prizes available, including kitchen appliances, and $25 or $500 gift cards to Williams Sonoma.


•There will be five phases during the contest in which Del Monte will feature a different canned variety every two week.


◦Green beans (November 5- November 18)
◦Corn (November 19- December 2)
◦Tomatoes (December 3- December 16)
◦Peaches (January 7- January 20)
◦Pears (January 21- February 3)

•Fans will have five days during each phase to submit their best tips, and consumers will be able to vote for their favorite tip during the second week of each phase. The five winning tips for each phase will then go head-to-head for a chance to win a Grand Prize culinary travel adventure, valued at $10,000, which will be announced February 15th, 2013.
