Hellmann’s(R) and Best Foods(R) Mayonnaise on Mission to Get Americans to Eat More Real Food

March 24, 2010

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 24 /PRNewswire/ — What’s on America’s dinner table these days? Is it fast food, microwaved or nugget-shaped? Instead of dinner for two, are American moms creating two dinners – one for the adults and a second to satisfy their kids’ pickier palates? Fueled by the belief that today’s families crave – and deserve – something better, Hellmann’s® and Best Foods® Mayonnaise is launching the Real Food Project, a nationwide initiative created to identify everyday dinner dilemmas. The mission: Help Americans eat more Real Food – one great-tasting meal at a time.

The campaign kicks off on Wednesday, March 24 when celebrated chef Bobby Flay and actress and aspiring “Real Food” mom Lori Loughlin unveil the Real Food Project on Hellmanns.com, a comprehensive online resource offering tips and ideas on how to create real meals made with Real Food.

“Real Food does not have to be complicated. With a few basic ingredients, it is easy to create a meal you can feel good about serving the whole family,” said Flay. “The Real Food Project provides a variety of recipes, tips and advice that shows you how to get your family to eat more real. With the help of the Real Food Project, Americans will see it only takes a few good, simple ingredients, like Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Mayonnaise to prepare a delicious Real Food meal.”

Since for many people, seeing is believing, The Real Food Project features a series of entertaining how-to tutorials – starring Flay – to give parents the tools and techniques to prepare great-tasting, at-home meals for their families. The videos are available at www.Hellmanns.com.

“I teamed up with Bobby and Hellmann’s® because, like many moms, I often find it challenging to get my family to eat Real Food, but I really want my whole family to eat well,” said Loughlin who cites her family’s busy schedules and her daughters’ unadventurous appetites as her personal barriers to Real Food. “I am really excited to be working with the Hellmann’s® Real Food Project, helping families get on the ‘road to Real.’”
