Jennie Garth has left Beverly Hills for life on the farm – maybe not literally, but she has teamed up with NBC and Hidden Valley Ranch to bring the web a new series called Garden Party. The series, which premiered Jan. 19 on iVillage, is a quasi-commercial that encourages families to incorporate more vegetables into their diets.
The series follows Garth as she meets with farmers, chefs, mothers, and children while celebrating a new veggie each month. This month it’s all about broccoli which, as Garth notes, means “little arm” in Italian. The actress takes viewers on a tour which showcases broccoli’s journey from “plant to plate.”
“I saw this series as an opportunity to help inspire, educate and motivate families like mine,” said the mother of three. “I found out that incorporating vegetables into your families’ life is not only healthy but can be fun too.”
Jennie Garth admits that she always thought adding dressing to veggies wasn’t a healthy option but since teaming up with Hidden Valley Ranch, she sees the condiment as a great way to introduce children to vegetables.
