My love for Stonyfield (not just the products -- but the company too) is no secret. I've already posted about my a-mah-zing lunch with Gary, the (now former) CE-Yo of Stonyfield and my very interesting invite to see author Robyn O'Brien speak about genetically modified ingredients and food allergies while dining at Naha (again, yum).
Honestly, I am so grateful to have had these unique educational opportunities, thanks to the super nice folks at Stonyfield. These interactions have made me think hard about where I spend my weekly grocery budget. So I was frankly pretty thrilled when Stoneyfield asked me to be one of their "Yo-Getters."
In short, the Yo-Getters are a group of ambassadors who want to know more about the food we feed our families. In the coming year, I am going to have a chance to learn more about Stonyfield and their objectives (mainly making healthy, organic food that is good for us, our economy and our planet).
This partnership is a no-brainer for me. I already spend a ton of time thinking about what I feed my family. And the answers are not always so clear. I welcome any experience that provides additional education and resources for moms like me who are just trying to do the right thing (whatever that is).
When I've had opportunities to interact with the folks at Stonyfield, I've been impressed with their commitment to goals and objectives that extend far beyond company profits. These are good people (and they worry about what they feed their families too). For example, Stonyfield has made great strides in educating consumers about the widespread presence of genetically modified ingredients in our food. This month Stonyfield is launching a year-long initiative called "I Will Know My Food in 2012." It is as simple as it sounds -- make a pledge to know more about what you are putting in your mouth this year. To learn more, visit www.iwillknowmyfood.com. Check it out.
From time to time, I am going to be sharing tidbits that I learn through my collaboration with Stonyfield here on Wee Windy City. Do you have questions you'd like answers to? Do your kids gulp down tons of Stonyfield yogurt every week like mine do? Let me know what you'd like to learn more about when it comes to feeding your family.
