Eggland’s Best Joins Forces with the Y to Empower Families with Nutrition Education
CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J. — Kicking off during National Nutrition Month, Eggland’s Best has teamed up with the YMCA to make a positive impact on families and communities and support healthier lifestyles for all! As a proud national sponsor of the Y’s Healthy Kids Day taking place on April 29, Eggland’s Best is encouraging families nationwide to focus on their overall nutrition and wellness routines. Additionally, the brand will provide recipes, tips, and funding to support nutrition education throughout the year.
“For over 30 years, the YMCA has given children and families the opportunity to learn about the importance of healthy eating, nutrition and physical activity, mental and emotional well-being and more with our Healthy Kids Day initiative and more,” said YMCA of the USA’s Chief Marketing & Communications Officer, Valerie Waller. “We’re excited to have Eggland’s Best’s support this initiative as well as other areas of our nutrition education programming to inspire families to build good nutrition and overall wellness habits throughout the summer months.”
Healthy Kids Day, the largest event of its kind in the nation, presents a special opportunity for kids and their caregivers to learn how to stay active and make healthy eating fun all summer long. As a proud sponsor of the national event, Eggland’s Best will be providing nutrition education tools and resources, from recipes to registered dietitian-backed tips, that families and children can implement in their daily lives to encourage physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Eggland’s Best will also support the Y’s mission and efforts to promote equity in the food distribution system, particularly in under-resourced communities that experience higher rates of food insecurity. A significant grant donation will help enhance and strengthen food access and nutrition education for underserved communities across the country.
“We’re so proud to team up with the Y to provide families with an opportunity to learn more about their overall wellness, while also supporting its critical efforts to promote food equity and access across the U.S.,” said Kurt Misialek, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “At Eggland’s Best, we strive to help families fulfill their health and wellness goals by supplying the only egg that provides superior taste, nutrition, versatility and freshness compared to ordinary eggs.”

For busy families looking for fun, healthy snacks on the go, Eggland’s Best tapped Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner to create two easy-to-make, nutrition-packed recipes! The Oatmeal Snack Bars or Breakfast Egg Boxes, both made with Eggland’s Best eggs, will give families the nutrition and energy to thrive throughout the day.
“Eggs are a go-to ingredient because they are a nutrition powerhouse that can be easily incorporated into any recipe or meal throughout the day,” said Blatner. “I only recommend Eggland’s Best eggs to my clients because they provide superior nutrition such as 25 percent less saturated fat, six times more Vitamin D and more than double the Omega-3s compared to ordinary eggs.”
Eggland’s Best eggs are a delicious and nutritious ingredient to incorporate into any meal. Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain 25% less saturated fat, six times more Vitamin D, more than double the Vitamin B12 and Omega-3s and ten times more Vitamin E. The superior nutrition of Eggland’s Best is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland’s Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer.
