Pork is serving up the inspiration to reconnect at the dinner table, thanks to the “Designing Spaces, Kid Spaces” TV show and the upcoming “Family Bonding in the Kitchen: Creating Delicious Pork Recipes Together” segment.
Designing Spaces, a half-hour television series that crisscrosses the country to showcase home trends, strives to educate, empower, and entertain the audience to make every space count, and to provide solutions to enjoy the space they live in. The upcoming pork segment, which will be broadcast nationally on the Women’s Entertainment channel and The Learning Channel in late September, will also appear in a number of local TV markets from Atlanta to Minneapolis.
“When ‘Designing Spaces’ approached us about this opportunity, we decided it offered a great way to reach our target audience of busy mothers,” says Laurie Bever, director of consumer advertising for the National Pork Board. “Not only can we provide specific information about pork’s benefits during this seven-minute segment, which is completely focused on pork, but a third-party endorsement is very credible.”
The segment features National Pork Board Consumer Advisory Panel member and registered dietitian Liz Ward, a mother of three who talks about the versatility, value and nutritional qualities of pork, while demonstrating easy pork dishes that can be prepared with children.
Ward notes that the recipes, including Happy Pork Chops, Cuban Glazed Pork Loin, Pork Tetrazzini, Pork Tortilla Soup, and Pork and Apple Cheddar Burgers, can be found on TheOtherWhiteMeat.com, which offers a wealth of family-friendly resources.
