Green Giant Vegetables - a giveaway

I'm pretty lucky, my kids love to eat vegetables. Whether it is fresh vegetables cut up and eaten plain or with some ranch dressing or hummus, or it is cooked vegetables there are few that they don't like. Like anyone, they have some that they prefer to be cooked over raw and some that they prefer to be raw over cooked. My son prefers his cauliflower cooked and my daughter prefers her carrots raw.

Saturday, as I was asking what everyone wanted for lunch, my son headed downstairs to see if there were any frozen meals. He came back with a box of Green Giant Honey Glazed Carrots and asked if he could have them for lunch, along with a PB&J. We suggested having carrots from the fridge at lunch and the other ones at dinner.

As a family, we love the Green Giant boxed vegetables. My husband's favorite is the Green Beans with Almonds, the kids like the Broccoli & Cheese Sauce, and I like the Asparagus Cuts. As a member of Weight Watchers, vegetables are an important part in helping me succeed. With so many varieties of Green Giant boxed vegetables to choose from, I don't have to worry about eating the same vegetable every day. What makes it even nicer is that even the varieties that include a sauce aren't high in calories, like the Broccoli & Cheese Sauce for example is still only 60 calories per serving (or 2 Weight Watchers PointsPlus values). The fact that they only take a few minutes to steam in the microwave, I can quickly include them as part of dinner (or pack them as a quick side at lunch!).

Here is some information that Green Giant shared:
    Green Giant Boxed Vegetables can help you stay on track to achieve your weight management goals in 2011. Twenty-nine delicious varieties are now endorsed by Weight Watchers®, and most have only a 1 or 2 PointsPlus® value per serving!
