I often hear parents discussing picky eaters and how hard it can be to get their children to actually eat a vegetable. Many parents resort to sneaking those veggies into other foods without the kids noticing. I consider myself lucky because all four of my girls like veggies regardless if they’re raw or cooked. I try to make sure we have a vegetable at every meal but with our busy lifestyle it can be hard to prepare homemade veggies all the time. For this reason Birds Eye is my go to for frozen vegetables.
When I pop a bag of Birds Eye Steamfresh veggies in the microwave I know my family will be enjoying only the highest quality vegetables because Birds Eye harvests and flash-freezes at peak freshness. When grocery shopping I tend to reach for the Steamfresh Pure & Simple vegetables like super sweet corn or cut green beans, but during my last trip to the store I noticed that Birds Eye has really started to spice things up. Their new line of Flavor Full products is full of bold, unexpected flavors.
There are eight varieties of Birds Eye Flavor Full products including Buffalo Cauliflower, Ranch Broccoli, Sour Cream & Onion Potatoes, Teriyaki Broccoli, Barbecue Sweet Corn, Sweet Chili Carrots, Wasabi Peas and Fiesta Lime Corn. I mentioned earlier that my girls like vegetables, but there still are some that they’d prefer not to eat. One of those is broccoli. And so I was curious to see their reaction when they realized I had switched out their plain broccoli with the bold, unexpected Birds Eye Flavor Full Teriyaki Broccoli.
A few days ago the girls asked to have grilled cheese and rolled up slices of ham for lunch. I told them that was no problem, but I’d also be adding a veggie to the menu as well. As soon as I placed their plates in front of them the girls knew something was different about this broccoli. It looked different. It smelled different. And once they took a bite they realized that it tasted different. Alleigh was a big fan of the teriyaki and said she loved that the broccoli had extra flavor to it. I highly doubt I will ever be able to buy plain broccoli again. Perhaps next time we’ll give the Birds Eye Flavor Full Ranch Broccoli a try!
