I love Stonyfield. Not only do they have the best organic yogurt – my middle son lives off their drinkable yogurt because he hates milk – but they do so much to educate the public about food issues like GMOs, food labeling and artificial dyes. I was just part of a Twitter chat earlier this week that was hosted by Stonyfield and Healthy Child (a non-profit dedicated to helping parents protect their children from harmful chemicals) about food labels. I learned so much – like did you know that US food manufacturers use 15 million pounds of food dyes while opting out of using these dyes in overseas? It’s staggering.
So Stonyfield launched “Know Your Food” earlier this year. It’s a year long campaign to educate consumers about what’s in their food – covering issues from food labels to food production. Right now, they added a fun, interactive portion of the campaign that invites food lovers to transform themselves in Food Superheroes to support a healthy, sustainable food system with small actions every day.
I just created my superhero profile – I’m The Crunchy Wonder.
And for each Food Superhero profile created, Stonyfield will donate $1 to FoodCorps, a national nonprofit organization that addresses childhood health through food by working directly in schools in limited-resource communities.
So join the Kale Crusader and the Strawberry Avenger at www.iWillKnowMyFood.com. You can even upload a photo, add your superhero food powers, and share in social media.
And the best part? Once you create your Food Superhero, you can enter this fabulous giveaway.
