Enjoying meals together can have a powerful, lasting impact on family health. That’s why Eggland’s Best (EB) has teamed up with actress, chef and mother of two, Haylie Duff to launch the EB Better Family Meals Program. Kicking off in September, National Family Meals Month™, the program will help educate families on the importance of spending time together and eating nutritious meals. Duff has created a variety of content, including tips and recipes using the #1 egg in the U.S., Eggland’s Best as part of the campaign.
While Duff is best known for her acting roles in various movies and television shows such as “Material Girls” and “Napoleon Dynamite,” she feels happiest at home in the kitchen, which is why she pursued her passion for cooking and created her own blog, cooking show and cookbook, called “Real Girl’s Kitchen.”
“Cooking has always been something I’ve loved to do, especially cooking for others,” said Haylie Duff. “Now that I’m a mom of two young kids, I realize how important it is to keep my little ones fueled with nutritious, wholesome foods. That’s why I only use Eggland’s Best eggs to ensure my family gets superior nutrition…plus, they just taste better!”
In honor of National Family Meals Month™, Haylie has created two recipes using Eggland’s Best eggs that help keep her family energized and ready to tackle the day: Egg, Bacon & Cheese “School Rolls” and her Power Bowl of Greens & Eggs.
“We are excited to work with the talented Haylie Duff to help provide families with nutritious recipes, while encouraging more quality family time,” said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland’s Best. “Her passion for better ingredients, cooking and her family make her a perfect partner to help create delicious and nutritious recipes and tips to help families make healthier choices.”
As part of the Eggland’s Best Better Family Meals Program, EB has also joined forces with Sur La Table to create a better-for-you interactive cooking series. Duff was in New York City recently to help launch the cooking series at Sur La Table where she showed off her cooking skills and shared delicious recipes. Classes for the series will take place at Sur La Table locations nationwide from September through December 15. Fans are encouraged to sign up for one of the 17,000 classes that will feature delicious recipes using Eggland’s Best eggs.

Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12. EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B5. EB’s superior nutritional profile 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.
