Perfectly Petite Pizzas Recipe by Produce For Kids + $25 Grocery Gift Card Give Away

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a Parents on Produce board member for Produce for Kids and I’m excited to be letting you know about their Spring/Summer 2012 Campaign!

It was a couple of years ago that I first discovered the handy Ideal Meals card display at my local Kroger. There were so many different recipes to choose from that looked delicious! I have to say our fruit and vegetable consumption has totally increased since I’ve become more aware of how much we are (or were NOT) eating every day! I love the inspiration that the site gives readers which includes informative articles, including the 10 Fun Summer Cookout Ideas or the Top 10 Fruits & Veggies for Spring.

Do you sense a theme here? Yes! Produce for Kids is celebrating their 10th anniversary!  Their philosophy is simple: promote healthy lifestyles for children by educating kids and parents about the benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables while also supporting worthy children’s charities and local children’s hospitals, including those affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network.

This year I asked my kids to take the recipe cards and put them in order of their favorites. They chose the Perfectly Petite Pizzas. They were SO easy to make and we had most of the ingredients on hand already (minus the roast beef).

Perfectly Petite Pizzas via Produce For Kids
 
Ingredients
  • 2 whole wheat English muffins
  • 4 Tbsp. tomato sauce
  • ¼ lb. deli roast beef
  • ¼ lb. mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 4 Tbsp. guacamole
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 2 mini cucumbers, sliced
Instructions
  1. 1. Toast English muffins.
  2. 2. Spread 1 Tbsp. tomato sauce on each English muffin. Add roast beef, cheese, 1 Tbsp. guacamole, tomato and cucumber.

Just a few ingredients–most of which we usually have on hand–are all it takes to put together a simple & delicious lunch!

The Produce for Kids Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign is happening now through the July 24th. Look for this year’s Idea Meals recipe cards in the produce section at one of 16 participating supermarket chains in your area. The Idea Meal cards are nutritionist and chef created and include great ideas for dinner, lunch, breakfast an snacks. Some of the stores are even hosting in-store appearances of Sprout channel characters (they’ve recently partnered with Sprout—look for more exciting things to come out of this partnership this fall!)

How can you help? When you purchase participating companies’ produce during the campaign dates, a percentage of all sales will go towards local charities. This spring the local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in areas across the nation are benefiting!

Since its creation in 2002 by Shuman Produce Inc., Produce For Kids has raised more than $3.1 million for local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. To learn more, visit www.produceforkids.org or www.childrensmiraclenetwork.org

    I’ve been very lucky that my kids love fruit so i never have a problem with that – but i sneak in veggies so they don’t even know they are eating it – in lasagna, meatballs, etc.

    Oops I just saw that the follows were supposed to be separate entries. I like Product for Kids on Facebook with my username Mary Happymommy.

  3. Jessica To says

    I sneak in veggies by making a vegetable beef soup. My son loves soup and will eat everything I put in it!

  4. Judy S says

    I always love giving my grandkids handheld sized fruits/veggies for snacks. They can eat and go and they love them.

  5. Amanda Sakovitz says

    we usually put veggies on pizza and when we eat fruit we usually put a little cool whip on it!

  6. Carolsue says

    My kids already love fruits and vegetables — salads, etc.- — more than meat. actually! SO no problems here!

    My kids love their fruits & veggies! When I plan our meals, I always plan for at least 2 veggies (sometimes more) at each dinner, at least one veggie and a fruit with lunch, fruit often for afternoon snack and I regularly make fruit desserts (pies, cobblers, shortcake, fruit over ice cream, etc) for after dinner.

  15. Elisabeth says

    We actually just eat fruits just the way they are! For veggies, sometimes we mix them into pasta.

  16. Charity S says

    I love to make healthy picnic lunches & family night dinners. It’s an easy way to include fruits and veggies.
