Country Crock Kids’ Thanksgiving Kit Giveaway

Thanks to our site contributor Amy for writing this review for us.

We cook all day long in our house and I love to experiment and try new recipes. Mason is my little helper and I try to involve him in as much as possible when it comes to cooking or baking. I have been very lucky that Mason will eat just about anything we give him. However, I know that is not the story in all houses. But, did you know that kids who are involved in the making of a meal are more likely to eat what they have made? Knowing that, now is the perfect time to get your kids involved with the planning and making of a traditional family dinner.

Thanksgiving is the perfect time for families to gather around the table and create traditions that will last a lifetime. I still have memories of helping my Mom in the kitchen preparing the food, especially the stuffing (my favorite). Now is also the time to try new healthy recipes that could become your child’s favorite.

Country Crock understands the importance of getting kids involved and excited about this traditional family meal. Easy veggie recipes are perfect for turning your little ones into sous chefs for the day. Whether mashing potatoes or seasoning squash, kids of all ages can get involved and discover that eating veggies is fun and enjoyable. With 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter, adding Country Crock to dishes is a perfect way to keep your Thanksgiving meal delicious, and loved by the entire family.

We had the chance to check out a fun kit from Country Crock that included:

:: Kid friendly cooking utensils & apron
:: A Thanksgiving place mat for their seat at the table
:: Vegetable recipes
:: Coupon for $1.50 off Country Crock

We gave the potato masher a try this morning while I was making pumpkin bread. Mason found it so easy to mash the ingredients with the Mr. Potato Masher. It is so cute with a potato spud as the handle. This makes it perfect for toddler hands to fit around too.
