Join AETN, Clifford the Big Red Dog at Whole Foods on Friday
Posted on 11 Sep 2012
AETN, Clifford the Big Red Dog and Whole Foods Market in Little Rock are celebrating Fantastic Organic this Friday, September 14, 3-5 p.m. Try some yummy samples, hang out with a cool red dog, and head off on a scavenger hunt to learn how to spot healthy foods and why you should chow down. Grab the kiddies after school and start the weekend early with games, goodies, prizes, samples and more for the entire family!
Why is it important to buy those fruits and veggies instead of your regular grocery store fare? PBS Kids has partnered with Whole Foods Markets® to tell you and your kids why organic matters. Even more important? This partnership is working to help families learn more about healthy eating habits with the Fantastic Organic campaign!
Fantastic Organic uses online resources from PBS Parents
, PBS Kids, and Whole Foods Market to help families learn to cook, shop and explore organic foods together. These fun, easy-to-use tools and educational resources are designed to help families make educated decisions about organic foods and encourage healthy lifestyles.
Online, you and your kids can explore exactly what organics are at pbsparents.org/fantasticorganic
. On top of educational illustrations and animated shorts, the website features excellent recipes and tips for making simple, healthy organic meals and snacks, as well as shopping tips and interactive kids activities that give parents a hand when it comes to encourage little ones healthy eating habits.
Whole Foods Market in Little Rock is taking the initiative off of the website and into real-life by hosting The Hunt for Organics in-store scavenger hunt. The game comes with an activity sheet and instructions so that parents and kids can have fun while they shop by searching for different organic produce, matching labels and checking their progress along the way!
After kids have completed their activity sheets, they can turn them in to receive an Organic Valley prize pack that includes a lunch bag and a coupon for Organic Valley products. Other prize packs include AETN and Whole Foods goodes. Everyone who participates is also entered into the grand prize drawing for a one-year supply of Organic Valley products.
