During this challenging time, health care workers are at the front line. Each day, they have risked (and continue to risk) their own welfare to help save the lives of others. Amid the chaos and stress, it can be difficult for them to be mindful of their own well-being. It’s possible that they’re not mindful of their nutritional needs. With this in mind, Veggies Made Great, the leader in unique vegetable-rich foods, is on a mission. They hope to spread the love. That said, they plan to ensure its nourishing and convenient products can benefit health care workers, and their counterparts, nationwide.

Veggies Made Great Cares About Health Workers

Toward this end, throughout May 2020 the company is urging throngs of #VegHead members in its Veggies Made Great Community.  This is a free-to-join online platform proffering freebies, plus a myriad of new and exciting ways to amp up nutrition with veggies. #VegHead is urging the community to nominate health care workers they would like to reward with the gift of good nutrition.

On May 31 the initiative culminates with 20 health care heroes being randomly selected. These heroes will receive an assortment of Veggies Made Great’s garden-to-grins grocery gifts.

This is just one exemplary way #VegHead members in the Veggies Made Great Community benefit. Beyond the opportunity to procure free products, the portal also avails a number of benefits. These include exclusive special discounts as well as early access to new product releases and other company news. It also provides sample products and share feedback; the ability to chat with various health experts like nutritionists, dietitians, health coaches, fitness instructors and more; and even chat with other like-minded #VegHeads; and share ideas, recipes and information.

America and vegetables

“Because only one in 10 Americans eat the daily recommended amount of veggies, our overarching mission with our product line—and facilitating community-based social collaboration—is to is to get America hooked on vegetables,” a Veggies Made Great company spokesperson said.

“Fad diets come and go and health advice changes over time. But there is one health message that has never changed: Eat your vegetables. With this, we’re proud to say that vegetables are the first and primary ingredient in every product we offer.”

For its part, Veggies Made Great creates top quality, remarkably delicious as well as nutritionally smart, veggie-rich foods that are ready to eat and available everywhere.
