It is September and your kids are all back in school. They are starting up with sports and after school activities. You are busy with work. With so many schedules, it is easy for families to just pass each other and not have a way to spend time together. It’s important that you try to find a way to get to the table with the best — YOUR family, Ore-Ida® Frozen Potato products and Heinz® Tomato Ketchup!
We have 3 kids and for us, it is so easy to just throw together dinner and not sit down together. However, we work hard to try to find at least a couple of nights during the week when we sit down at the table together as family. We do what we can to make this a priority. We know that as parents, we need to stay involved with our kids and what is going on with them (they grow up way too quickly as it is).
The problem we face is that our kids are picky eaters. *SIGH* I still make the foods I want and they have to try them, but they never do so with a smile. What I try to do is to include something with our meal that they love. The one thing that I see brings a smile to their face is french fries and ketchup. Not just any brand – we serve Ore-Ida® Frozen Potato products and Heinz® Tomato Ketchup. And what makes this combo better? Well, a COUPON of course!

Our family’s favorite combo has to be Ore-Ida® Shoe String French Fries and Heinz® Tomato Ketchup. These fries are crispy no matter how we make them — be it the fryer or in the oven. I usually find that this is the one item which is never a left-over – the kids just gobble them down! We actually work in a new food with our fries. I give them a handful of fries and they can have more, but they have to eat the rest of the foods on their plate (or at least give each new food 2 or 3 bites). They want those Ore-Ida® Shoestring French Fries and Heinz® Tomato Ketchup, that they usually do this with very little complaint. The bonus is that they end up finding out that they do like some of these new meats, fruits and veggies — GO MOM!!!!!!
If you find your kids aren’t willing to try those fruits, veggies and other items you want them to, this is certainly a great way to get them to do so. Just serve up Ore-Ida® Frozen Potato products and Heinz® Tomato Ketchup along with your other meal items and have your kids try the new foods (or ones they don’t care for) and they can get more fries once they do!!!
Yeah — Mom’s got this!
