Five media giants, 18 publications, and social media Web site Pinterest are collaborating in the effort to make more than 3,000 nutritious recipes that support USDA’s MyPlate easily available.
They are labeling, compiling and promoting the recipes on their most popular cooking sites, which garnered 150 million views in January alone.
The first lady said that the partnership takes the guesswork out of finding healthier recipes and gives parents the information and the tools they need to make healthy choices for their families every day.
“As a mom, I know how challenging it can be to think of new meal ideas that your kids will like and that will be good for them,” she said.
Condé Nast, Hearst Magazines, Meredith, Food Network and Time Inc. are collaborating on the effort to make it easier for millions of online visitors to put nutritious meals on the table every day.
Nearly 1,000 of the recipes have been collected on a new Pinterest page associated with the effort, providing a one-stop-shop where parents, beginner home cooks, and even the most experienced chefs can find and share healthier recipes.
The Participating publications include Allrecipes.com, Better Homes & Gardens, CookingLight.com, CountryLiving.com, Delish.com, Diabeticliving.com, EatingWell.com, Epicurious.com, Everyday With Rachael Ray, FamilyCircle.com, FoodNetwork.com, GoodHousekeeping.com, MyRecipes.com, Parents.com, RealSimple.com, Redbook.com, Recipe.com and Woman’sDay.com.
