CLOSED Ragu $300 American Express Card Giveaway

Did I capture your attention? Oh yeah, today I am hosting a one week long giveaway for one $300 American Express gift card that can be used online and in stores in the US.

If you haven’t been reading along I am a Ragu Brand Ambassador which means I get to offer cool things to my readers, host home parties with yummy food and I attended an event in NYC to learn more about the Ragu Brand. Speaking of the Ragu Brand Immersion day, I think now is none other than a better time to share some fun details with you that I learned.

Did you know ….

  • More than 77.8 Billion Dinners are served each week
  • 877 meals were prepared and consumed at home per person in 2010 … 243 were dinner meals
  • Less than 10% of kids are eating the recommended daily amount of vegetables (CDC, 2009)
  • According to the Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010, children aged 1-8 years have low intake of vegetables with 75% consuming less than recommended levels and median intakes less than 1 cup equivalent per day. Reference 

 Are you ready to enter to win a $300 American Express Gift Card today? Keep in mind this is a prepaid credit card that can be used in stores and online anywhere American Express is accepted in the US only.

  9. Ragu has always been my favorite bottled pasta sauce, and I love now that they have an all natural line with healthier ingredients.

  10. I love Ragu’s Traditional Sauce. Sometimes I mix it with half and half and make a Parma Rosa type sauce.

  11. I can believe that less than 10% of kids eat the recommended allowance of vegetables. I know it is hard to get mine to eat them. I often substitute fruit for them at meals.

  13. wow, that’s incredible that so few kids get the veggies they need. I guess knowing that is incentive to have cut up veggies available in the fridge at all times and easily accessible – so they will reach for them as a snack instead!
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    btw, I very much like that you explicitly state that we can only win this giveaway once, even though multiple blogs are having the same giveaway. Much better than waiting until someone wins twice and then telling them they aren’t eligible for the second win. Of course if the sponsor doesn’t tell the blogger about only allowing a winner one prize, not much the blogger can do.

  14. When I am not making sauce from scratch (which is less and less often these days, never seem to have a whole day to do it) Ragu is the only sauce I use

  17. I’m shocked by the numbers reported for kids eating veggies – we need to change that in our homes and schools.

  27. My niece is 5 years old, and she’s one of those rare, odd kids who likes to eat their veggies (but she’s really picky about eating most other things) lol. She got excited the other night when she saw broccoli in her dinner plate. Anyways, thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  32. Sadly my son is one of those getting “Less than 10% of kids are eating the recommended daily amount of vegetables (CDC, 2009)”. He’s fine with fruit, but I really struggle to get him to eat vegetables. It’s especially frustrating for me, because I’m almost a vegetarian and keep a wide variety of fresh veggies in the house, and I try to present them different ways, he will try them but he just doesn’t like them.

  42. Amazing that less than 10% of kids are eating the recommended daily amount of vegetables. I am sure that correlates with the obesity problem.

  44. $300 bucks would come in so handy right now. I’m sure we aren’t the only ones who could use it. Thanks for the giveaway.
