Kristin of Mama Luvs Books found taking the Make The Switch Challenge with Jennie-O and Champions For Kids an inspiring experience. Converting favorite family meals from their usual beef content to lean Jennie-O resulted in both tasty, healthier meals and savings to their family budget.
Kristin converted her savings into healthy snacks for local pre-school children, included the hands-on learning of a taste test, as well as an information packet and package of lean Jennie-O for each child to take home and share with their families.
“The lesson I presented started with discussing healthy food options and “not-so healthy” food options. It was good to see that kids really did know the difference! They had great ideas and were eager to participate.”
The lessons and learning about healthy food choices will stay with these children for a lifetime. “I gave all the kids a pack of Jennie-O Smoked Turkey Sausages to take home to have their parents cook for them for dinner. They were super excited to get this, and I saw some kids talking to their parents when they were picked up and telling them why turkey is so healthy.”
