America’s Largest Media Companies, the Partnership for a Healthier America, Let’s Move!, MyPlate and Pinterest Join to Make Healthier Recipes Easy to Find and Share
Epicurious, Food Network, Hearst Magazines, Meredith and Time, Inc. are compiling and pinning thousands of recipes that align with USDA Guidance for Healthier Eating
WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) Honorary Chair First Lady Michelle Obama announced today that five of the nation’s largest media companies, as well as Pinterest, an online tool millions use to find the inspiration for their lives, joined PHA, Let’s Move!, and USDA’s MyPlate to make it easier for millions of people to put healthier meals on the table every day.
Epicurious, Food Network, Hearst Magazines, Meredith and Time Inc., through an agreement with PHA, are making available thousands of nutritious recipes that align with guidance that support USDA’s MyPlate, and are labeling, compiling and promoting these recipes on their most popular cooking websites.
More than 3,000 recipes have been identified across 18 websites, and today nearly 1,000 of these recipes have been collected on a new Pinterest page associated with the effort, providing a one-stop-shop where parents, beginner home cooks and even the most experienced chefs can find and share healthier recipes.
“As a mom, I know how challenging it can be to think of new meal ideas that your kids will like and that will be good for them,” said First Lady Michelle Obama . “This partnership takes the guess work out of finding healthy recipes and gives parents the information and the tools they need to make healthy choices for their families every day.”
Over the next two years, partners will roll out 250 MyPlate-inspired recipes each month on individual brand websites as well as on the PHA MyPlate Pinterest page. Brands participating in the effort include:
“PHA’s goal is always to make the healthy choice the easy choice for busy parents and families,” said PHA CEO Larry Soler . “To do that, we have to meet home cooks where they are—and millions of them visit our partner sites as well as Pinterest every month to find tasty recipes. Compiling healthier recipes, making them easy to find and educating people about how they fit into a healthy, balanced meal is a great way to give parents and families the tools to help reverse this epidemic.”
PHA’s key partners in this effort include:
Let’s Move!—First Lady Michelle Obama launched Let’s Move! on February 9, 2010 to unite the country around our kids’ health and create real support for families to live healthier lives. Since then parents, business leaders, educators, elected officials, military leaders, chefs, physicians, athletes, childcare providers, community and faith leaders, and kids themselves have stepped up to improve the health of our nation’s children.
USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion (CNPP)—CNPP is the USDA agency tasked with developing the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) and promoting the guidelines to reach consumers of all ages through innovative guidance and resources supporting the MyPlate food icon at ChooseMyPlate.gov and through USDA’s cutting edge SuperTracker. As subject matter advisors, CNPP will provide educational information for the effort as well as ensure that recipes being promoted and compiled align with the guidelines.
Pinterest—Pinterest is a tool that helps people discover and organize the things they love. Millions of people turn to Pinterest every day to find inspiration, including ideas for healthy recipes.

In addition to pinning healthy, family-friendly recipes to MyPlate Recipe Pinterest group boards, Epicurious will create and post to its site original content – including features, recipes, and videos – that addresses raising healthy eaters. Epicurious has worked to promote Let’s Move! since its inception, culminating in the first Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and Kids’ State Dinner last August.

100 Back-to-School Lunch Tips by Moms for Moms
1. On Sunday night, save time and morning hassles by planning the sandwich and snack for each weekday.
2. Keep all lunch ingredients in one section of your fridge so everything is easy to find when needed.
3. Make a week’s worth of sandwiches at one time, wrap each one in aluminum foil, label with your child’s name and the day, and then freeze. The daily sandwich will be ready each morning for your child to grab, and thawed by the time they’re ready to eat.
4. An alternative: Make school lunches the night before, pack into lunch boxes or bags, and place the entire lunch box or bag in the fridge so it’s ready to grab the next morning.
5. Pre-pack a week’s worth of lunch veggies—mini-carrots, celery sticks, cherry tomatoes, etc.—in re-sealable plastic bags so they’re ready each morning.
6. A stainless steel thermos ensures soup or chili stays hot until lunchtime; pour hot water into the thermos first to prepare it for the hot liquid.
7. Prevent wiggle room by wrapping sandwiches in plastic wrap to keep everything secure.
8. Line both slices of sandwich bread with lettuce so juicy veggies stay in the middle and don’t make the bread soggy.

“Our research shows men genuinely enjoy cooking but have uniquely masculine interests and tastes; they deserve a dedicated and authentic community to connect with each other,” said Lisa Sharples, president of Allrecipes. “Because the site is based on user generated content, it will be the genuine voice of men and what they want in food…a site created by men, for men.”
Man Tested Recipes was created based on research conducted by Allrecipes over the past year. According to comScore, in 2009, males accounted for 36 percent of unique visitors to community-food sites, consuming 30 percent of total category PVs (1.2 billion). Moreover Allrecipes’ research indicated that 70 percent of men were more interested in visiting a men’s food site than a general food site. Allrecipes created Man Tested Recipes to fill this void for hungry men everywhere.
More surprising stats include:
● Men enjoy eating more than women (men 91 percent, women 88 percent).
● The majority of men prefer to eat food cooked by other men (53 percent).
● When asked their preferred dinner ingredient, steak is the top choice among men while pasta is the top choice of women.
● When asked to describe the perfect dish, the top two adjectives among men are “spicy” and “meaty,” whereas women select “healthy” and “savory.”
● The grill far outweighs the oven as men’s favorite way to cook (Grill 46 percent, Oven 17 percent), while it’s the opposite for women (Grill 16 percent, Oven 42 percent).
● Men are willing to spend more time preparing meals than women – 57 percent of men say “40 minutes to as long as it takes” is acceptable while 52 percent of women prefer to limit cooking time to “0-40 minutes
