Bush's Beans organizes "Mom and Kids" Panel
June 21, 2007
Bush’s Beans recently launched a national search for 50 moms and kids to test recipes and share their best veggie tips. The goal? Figure out what pleases both in the mission to bring good health and great taste together on the plate.
The panel’s founding member is registered dietitian and mom Connie Guttersen, instructor at the Culinary Institute of America and author of “The Sonoma Diet.” As a working mother of two, she brings firsthand experience to this effort. Guttersen created bean recipes with her children, and will turn them over to the panel to make, taste and rate.
“My children are 6 and 10. One of the biggest challenges has been getting my 6-year-old son to like eating vegetables. I know how important it is to feed my family healthy, tasty foods – especially vegetables – that they will actually eat and enjoy,” said Guttersen. “That’s why beans are so great!”
Beans really are “The Vegetable with More™.” They are packed with nutrients including fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants, are low-fat, cholesterol-free and an affordable source of protein. With their great taste and versatility, they add variety to any healthy diet.
Members of the Moms and Kids Panel will receive a grocery allowance in exchange for participation, with an application deadline by June 28 at www.bushbeans.com.
