Perdue is celebrating the release of their Perdue Chicken Plus line with a very special contest honoring America’s Pickiest Eaters!

In the United States it seems that children up to the age of 18 are not receiving the daily intake of vegetables they need to be healthy. And Perdue wants to change that. In fact, not only have they launched a new product, the Chicken Plus line that is infused with vegetables, but they are also hosting a special contest in honor of “America’s Pickiest Eaters.”

According to a press release from Perdue they revealed that from now until March 1, parents can enter their child into the America’s Pickiest Eater Contest by submitting either a video or photo of the most outrageous, humorous, or down-right sneakiest picky-eating habits of your kid. The entries will be judged based on originality, how creative it is, and quality. Winners will be announced later in March.

So what’s in it for our picky eaters? Perdue will be giving America’s pickiest eater a year’s supply of Perdue Chicken Plus products. And that’s not all, as they will also be featured in advertising for the company. Plus, 2,000 pounds of food will also be donated to the school of the winner’s choice.

This is like a win-win-win. Not only do we get to see some of the pickiest eaters in the country, but someone will be the ultimate winner and get an awesome prize, while an entire school will be fed for a while.

There are three ways that people can enter this contest. There is a direct link to upload your nomination at America’s Pickiest Eater. Or, if you would prefer to enter via social media, you can enter either on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. When using social media you will need to be following the Perdue accounts and you also have to use the two hashtags necessary to let the company know that you are entering the contest which are, “#AmericasPickiestEater” and “#Contest.”

Perdue wants parents to know that they are not alone when it comes to having a picky eater at home. It is because of this that the company explained, “Our goal in developing our new PERDUE CHICKEN PLUS product line was primarily to help the parents of picky eaters get more veggies into their kids’ diets. It was imperative to us that we develop products with the added nutritional benefits of vegetables without sacrificing the flavor and texture that people love about our existing chicken nuggets, tenders, and patties.”

This might be the perfect time to change your picky eater’s mind. Not only will this new line of products help add more veggies into your child’s diet, but this contest could also remind you that there are a lot of picky eaters in the world and you are not alone.
