I attended with my 2 year old and she loved running around the vegetable forest (which was large cutouts of veggies). I also loved seeing the fountains of Ranch Dressing, and seeing a vegetable gardening demo from Jeanne Pinsof Nolan (The Organic Gardener). Before the event, I spoke to Jeanne and she told me that even though my older child doesn’t eat many vegetables, the raw cucumbers he actually likes, are a good start.
Actress (and mom of 3!) Jennie Garth hosted this event. She’s joined forces with the makers of Hidden Valley® Salad Dressings for Love Your Veggies™ campaign. Fourth and fifth grade students from two NYC schools got to meet Jennie, prepare veggie recipes (yum..bagel smiles) and learned about the importance of incorporating vegetables for a well-balanced diet. She talked about how she helps her three daughters develop a love of vegetables– click here to see her fantastic tips!
Jennie Garth is currently starring in the iVillage.com Webisode series “Garden Party” sponsored by Hidden Valley® Salad Dressings.
