DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. Sara Lee North American Fresh Bakery, makers of Sara Lee Soft & Smooth bread, welcomed 13 of America’s influential parenting bloggers to its Sara Lee kitchens for the pioneer Sara Lee Soft & Smooth Back-to-School Nutrition Summit.
During the summit, moms and experts worked together to develop key tips to send kids back-to-school with quick and easy prepared lunches.
“Sara Lee went straight to the source to understand the nutrition challenges moms are having when sending their kids back to school, especially when it comes to the ongoing confusion that exists in the bread aisle,” said Tim Zimmer, VP at Sara Lee North American Fresh Bakery. “Each mom blogger had great ideas to help us educate America’s moms when it comes to differentiating between traditional wheat and 100% whole wheat breads and moving white bread families to newer versions with whole grain.”
SunChips, National Geographic announce winners of ‘Green Effect’ initiative
PLANO, Texas In conjunction with National Geographic, The SunChips brand, PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division’s line of multigrain snacks, announced the five winners of the “Green Effect,” a national effort to encourage consumers to be more environmentally friendly.
In April 2009, SunChips and National Geographic asked consumers to submit their ideas on how to make their communities greener. Hingham High School’s, of Hingham, Mass., “Give Plants a Chance” entry was the top-voted consumer idea, which plans to create a campus greenhouse to help educate students on how to live a completely sustainable life.
Four other winners were chosen by a panel of eco ambassadors, all of whom received a $20,000 check to help turn their green idea into reality.
“We’re extremely proud of the five winners and believe in the big changes each of them will bring to their community,” said Gannon Jones, VP portfolio marketing, Frito-Lay North America. “In the end, the judges and consumers based their votes on the mission of the ‘Green Effect’ which was to support compelling ideas that would truly accelerate green change, as well as inspire others to make their own changes.”
