We're on a mission to help kids eat better, so we invited some of our friends from the Scottsdale Moms Blog, along with their children, to attend a culinary-inspired field trip at our newest Arizona MAD Greens at FLW & Thompson Peak Parkway. Studies show that healthy eating habits start at an early age, so a big part of the event was showing kids how much fun customizing and combining different fruits, veggies and leafy greens can be.

During the event, kids were encouraged to touch, taste and talk about different ingredients. The goal was that they'd leave MAD Greens not only full, but full of excitement for trying new things and eating healthier at each meal.
Check out some event photos below...And a big thanks to our amazing MAD Greens - Hilton Village General Manager, Katie D, and our MAD Greens - FLW & Thompson Peak Parkway Assistant General Manager, Ashley M., for hosting the event and making sure everyone had a great time and learned a lot!

and Super Box
were created to make eating fruits, veggies and protein more fun. Bite-sized pieces with a homemade ranch dipping sauce are irresistable to even the pickiest eaters! (Photo courtesy of the Scottsdale Moms Blog on Instagram
