Embracing a Healthy Family: PERDUE® and Crayola's National Contest

PERDUE® and Crayola's National Contest


School is back and who has time between working (if you do), chores, errands, extra curricular activities and so forth to fix dinner every night?  I know I struggle and feel bad when I take the easy, less nutritious way out by stopping for fast food.  I try to find simplified meals at times for my little picky eaters and one common staple in our house is PERDUE® chicken.  


I received a complimentary package of PERDUE® breaded chicken breast nuggets from their Whole Grain breaded line for review.  The PERDUE® Whole Grain product line are made from PERDUE® premium all white chicken with whole grain breading.  I like that they are trying to make the chicken healthier by using whole grain breading and it tastes delicious.  My two chicken nugget experts know a good chicken nugget when they taste it!

Another convenience about PERDUE® packages are the easy-open and close zipper bags which means less money and waste in storing the extra servings.  My girls will eat PERDUE® chicken nuggets for a snack or a meal as they don't care as long as they get them!

"The USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend that all Americans make half or more of their grains, whole grains. Each Whole Grain PERDUE® product features the Whole Grains Council's Stamp indicating that each serving provides at least one half-serving (8g) of whole grains.:
