Kidfresh Mealtime Sweepstakes!

Update 11/1/08: The sweepstakes has now ended. A winner will be chosen at random shortly. Thank you all for your interest in this promotion.

How often do we hear children say : "I hate broccoli and I don't want any!" As parents, we constantly have to balance giving children the food they want with making sure they eat a healthy diet.

BlogHer has joined up with new healthy & all-natural mealtime alternative Kidfresh ( to launch a sweepstakes where you can share tips and stories for inspiring children to try new foods and eat nutritious meals.

As each child and situation is different, creative inspiration during meal-time can sometimes be the difference between a peaceful family gathering and parent/child conflict.

Every parent has his/her own tips when it comes to mealtime:

Cooking creativity - "Since I began to make sliced eggplants baked with milk and browned on top, my son loves eating veggies. He really enjoys golden brown and crunchy food"

Tweaking your children's favorite foods - "My daughter loves mac and cheese. I buy her the Kidfresh ones with hidden carrots inside"

Repackaging/enhancing the eating experience - "Here comes the plane; open up the hanger." "Why don't you try dipping your asparagus into ketchup so you don't taste it?"

Share your story or idea below and you could win a $500 Visa® gift card from Kidfresh! The sweepstakes will run through October 31st with a winner picked at random.

We know how difficult it can be to come up with nutritious meals your child will actually eat. Kidfresh is all about convenience for busy and caring parents, offering fresh and healthy meals for children.
