Del Monte Fresh ~ Teacher Monday

As a mom of 2 young children, I know how important it is to get the kids to eat healthy at mealtimes and at snack times.

I am a lucky mom in the fact that my children LOVE to eat and snack on fruit!

As much as healthy eating begins at home, Teachers who our children spend all day with at school also play a BIG part in teaching kids in the classroom and by example about healthy eating.

This fall, Del Monte Freshwill hold it’s second annual online contest “Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms”. This program awards cash and fresh fruit to kindergarten through 12th grade school teachers across North America to encourage them to incorporate healthy eating and living messages into classroom activities.

60 teachers will win a total of $1000 cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruits for their students. Top winners will also get a Del Monte Fresh Field Day event for their school in which the entire student body will enjoy a day of Del Monte Freshfruit, games and activities.

If we can encourage just a few more kids to reach for fresh fruit instead of chips or cookies , we have accomplished our goals.” ~ Dennis Christou, VP of Marketing, North America for Del Monte.

Have one of your children’s teachers enter this great contest and then get every parent from your school to vote for them! Go to today for more details.


Enter for your chance to win a backpack full of school supplies! Consider donating these school supplies to your child’s classroom or to charity that provides school supplies for families that cannot afford them.
