Anyone who grew up in the 1990’s would know her as Kelly
Taylor – the cute girl next door from
When the curtain came down on
in 2000, Jennie Garth continued to act in sitcoms like
What I Like
and made-for-TV movies. In recent years, she’s best known for
dancing with some stars and more recently for being introduced to a
whole new generation of Beverly Hills kids while reprising her role
as a grown up Kelly Taylor in the CW’s
Despite her very busy Hollywood schedule, Jennie feels
without a doubt her most important role is Mom to three beautiful
little girls – Lucia Bella, Lola Ray and Fiona Eve. Married to
actor Peter Facinelli of the
movies, Jennie grew up on a 25-acre ranch in rural Illinois. She
was the youngest of seven kids and learned through her family to eat
fresh fruits and vegetables right from their own gardens.
That one fact alone probably makes her the perfect candidate
to host her latest venture, the internet series “Garden Party.”
Airing on iVillage.com, the series is created by NBC/Universal and
the makers of Hidden Valley Ranch. The shows feature a new
vegetable each month and highlight Jennie visiting farms, meeting
with chefs, Moms and just hanging with kids – having fun and eating
veggies. Most importantly for parents though, Jennie shares
secrets, hints and good advice on how to incorporate veggies into
the diets of even the pickiest eaters.
Recently, we were one of several websites
who were able to speak with Jennie about kids, eating healthy
and “Garden Party.”
It looks like
you’re having a really good time selling the series and interacting
with the kids. How did this project come about? How did you get
involved with it?
Well, you know, I
did have such a great time doing “Garden Party.” I didn't know that
I would get to interact so much with the kids but we ended up in the
middle of a field in LA and we were totally gardening and eating
vegetables all day. We had so much fun. How I got involved was, you
know, a lot of people my age are moms. I'm a pretty recognizable
face for a certain age woman and people that grew up watching
Beverly Hills 90210, the original show. Now a lot of us women
have kids. One of the big issues is how to make sure our kids are
eating healthy. I know I struggle with it with my own kids. I love
to talk to other women about relevant issues and this is definitely
a relevant issue so they came to me and asked me to do this Web
series and ended up being a really fun time.
You seem also
very comfortable talking about the foods and talking about different
serving options that exist and making them more appealing to kids.
Did you have this knowledge ahead of time or did you find that you
learned a lot yourself in doing this series?
You know, I
thought I knew everything there was to know about a vegetable but I
learned so much everyday just shooting this. I think that anybody
that watches it will be kind of surprised too. I got some really
great tips. Everyday I would come home from shooting this Web thing
and I would try a new vegetable at home. The kids were into and so
it did actually end up teaching me about new vegetables, new little
tricks I could try to get my kids to eat them. So it was a learning
experience. But I am kind of a foodie, I like food and I love to
What are some of
your favorite vegetables?
Oh my gosh I love
sugar snap peas and asparagus. I love every vegetable I swear to
you. When I was doing this series standing out in these beautiful
fields full of fresh vegetables I was going crazy because there were
gorgeous vegetables all around me. I got introduced to several
vegetables that I'd never even heard of. I can't remember the names
of them right now but like Japanese turnips and crazy things. And
they were so delicious straight out of the field. We cook a lot of
carrots and broccoli stuff like that at my house, you know,
Why do you think
people will want to take their time to watch “Garden Party?”
Well I think that
there are a lot of moms out there that are like me and they’re a
little lost when it comes to how do I get my kids to eat vegetables?
I know they’re supposed to eat them and it’s our responsibility to
give these kids a balanced diet and not only just feed them but
teach them how to incorporate vegetables into their own diets when
they get old enough to choose what they’re eating when they’re away
from you. So I think that that is the reason I did it, to help
educate other moms and educate myself about vegetables.
Other than a
particular vegetable type that you were introduced to was there
something about vegetables in particular you learned from doing
vegetables that I learned from doing this? I learned about going
straight to the fields. If you can in your neighborhood going to
local farmer’s markets to get fresh produce and try to stay away
from - try to buy local which was something that I learned about
that I didn't really think of before. When you think about all the
shipping and how far the vegetables are traveling when they’re
coming from Chile and all these places. It’s best to get the
freshest, quickest, closest to you grown vegetable you can.
Yes I'm sure your
stomach appreciates you learning this new...
I'm sure it does
too. I also learned that… I always thought maybe putting dressing or
dip or whatever was not so good for kids but this is actually a
great alternative; a way to get your kids introduced to vegetables
and get them to like them. I think a great tip is when they’re
hungry and they come home from school they want a snack and just put
out some vegetables that you've cut up and a little bit of Hidden
Valley Ranch dressing. They dip it in there, they eat it up because
they’re hungry and all the sudden they’re craving vegetables and
mentioning, obviously you as a mom have also struggled to get your
kids to eat vegetables and stuff. What is the most dreaded veggie in
your household? What’s the one that the kids just run for the halls
I don't know. You
know, I can't really get them to eat asparagus. I try. But there’s
no like Brussels sprouts horror stories happening here because I
really only cook the things that I know that they’re going to eat;
why waste my time cooking things that they’re going to just spit
out? So it’s - it’s all copacetic here; we’re all eating vegetables
at every meal and I stress the importance of them having a balanced
I know you grew
up on a ranch. Was that the start of you really liking like fresh
foods and things like that?
Yeah we had a big
garden since I can remember growing up. We lived way out in the
country and we didn't have a lot of money. So we always had our
vegetables grown in our garden and we would be out there taking care
of them and growing them and gardening. Doing this Web series really
sort of brought me back to my roots I guess - excuse the pun. I can
remember when I was little walking in the cornfields in Illinois and
just having fresh corn whenever you wanted it right outside your
door. So it was quite a luxury. I didn't know it then but I
appreciate it now.
Awesome. And was
there ever a vegetable for you growing up that you really dreaded
that you did the old hide in the napkin trick at dinner or anything
I wasn't very
fond of zucchini. When you cook it, it gets a little slimy.
crazy about slimy zucchini.
I had to laugh
when I first saw the press release for this show. I have to douse
vegetables in Hidden Valley Ranch to get my kids to eat them so...
And you know what
there’s nothing wrong with that. Don't feel bad about it. I have to
Yeah. Anyway I
wanted to follow up on the question that you just answered. I always
found that when I was growing up we always had a vegetable garden
too. It was such a bonding thing. And my parents, even though
they’re elderly, they’re in their 70s, they still have a vegetable
garden every year. My children really connect with their
grandparents. I was just wondering if you can talk about the bigger
picture of gardening, which is, it’s a really bonding experience. If
you could just elaborate more on that and what values you hope your
own children will take as they grow older.
Well, I haven't
had a garden for a while. We have a garden at our ranch but we don't
live there. We live in the city and we didn't have a garden. My
husband’s father came in and helped us plant a garden in our front
yard. I said I don't care, I want a garden. Rip up the grass let’s
get it going, you know. And we made it happen. Over a weekend... We
put in this really great little garden. It’s just fun and I can be
cooking and I say oh girls go get me a cucumber or go get me some
tomatoes and they love going out there and picking it and having
that connection with what they’re actually eating. As far as what it
means to our family I think any tradition you can pass along to your
children that you had when you were younger are priceless.
Yeah, so this is
Peter’s father correct? [Garth is married to
This is, yeah. He
can grow tomatoes on a gutter vine, I don't know, this guy can do
anything with vegetables - growing things.
Is NBC going to
be doing more Trojan horse type advertising with a good message in
other words picking products? Are you going to be involved in more
sort of Web series where the advertisers are worked into a storyline
that’s also educational?
You know, I think
it’s a great - it’s definitely a great medium. I'm very proud to be
a part of this. I've never done something like this, an educational
Web series. But I loved it. I love teaching people and I love
talking to other women about what I know and what they know and
sharing information. So I think this is a great place to do that. I
hope they do, I don't really know about their future plans so.
is it important for children to learn where their food comes from or
even how to grow their own?
It gives them a
sense of investment. When you teach your kids instead of just sort
of preaching to them, when you teach them about why something is
good for them they want to do the right thing. Kids have this
inherent quality to want boundaries and they want to do the right
thing. When they know how good for them eating fresh vegetables from
the garden is instead of packaged and processed foods they want to
take care of themselves and they want to be healthy and strong and
be able to run and play. So this is vital information to children.
To parents to teach their kids that what they’re eating and how it’s
affecting their body and their performance at school, you know.
Plus it probably
tastes better if they grow it themselves?
I'm sure that
they get a kick out of going to the garden and being able to pick
something right out of the ground and wash it off and eat it.
There’s something so cool about that and especially when it tastes
What have you
found is the easiest way to introduce vegetables into your
children’s diet and make it fun for them?
Well the old
go-to for any mom is to dip it in the Hidden Valley Ranch because
that stuff is like magic. It tastes really good and kids think that
they’re having a treat but really they’re getting the nutrients from
the vegetables and it really makes it a little easier.
So aside from the
dip is presentation key? Like what if you made it into a funny face
or something? Does that work?
Yeah you can. I
did some of that in the Web series too… making funny faces out of
the vegetables or letting the kids actually participate in preparing
them. They love to like cut and peel stuff, so if you can get your
kids up on the kitchen counter helping you to prepare their
vegetables, that’s always an incentive for them.
Would it be a
good idea around Halloween to show them how to cook a pumpkin?
Of course that
would be a good idea. I don't see why not. You can use the seeds and
teach them how to roast the seeds. They love to do that.
Okay so I'm
correct, this month’s vegetable is broccoli. So what’s your favorite
way to prepare broccoli?
You know, I have
recently stopped using my microwave for health purposes. Like I was
just realizing: oh my gosh I'm microwaving everything. So one day I
literally put tape across the microwave saying don't use me. I used
to just like nuke it and put some cheese on it. I haven't done it
yet since then but I think I will just put it in the toaster oven in
some water. I just cook it a little bit because the kids like to
have that crunch, you know, instead of all soggy and mushy and
disgusting. So don't overcook it. Then I like to sprinkle or lay
some like singles - cheese slices – over it and just put the lid
back on it and let the cheese sort of melt onto the broccoli. My
kids love it.
You can with
cheese or dips, either one.
Yeah, I'll eat
anything with cheese or dip on it.
So you have a
very busy life with your career and your husband three beautiful
daughters. How do you keep it all balanced?
I am just like
any other person out there. I make lists and I try to accomplish
things everyday. I could lay in bed and take the kids to school and
then go back to bed. But I don't, I go and exercise and I just try
to keep the ball rolling. You've got to keep it going and keep
accomplishing things with your time. I think just prioritizing and
really planning out your work commitments and your family time,
carving out dinner for family every night. I do spend a lot of time
thinking about what I'm going to feed them too. As mom I think about
that a lot and I prepare their meals everyday. So it’s just about
balance and trying to keep it all together.
I checked out the
Web series today and I saw there are a lot of [episodes] –
everything from going to the farm and seeing where vegetables are
grown to actually what to do with the vegetables when you get them
home. What was your favorite part of filming the show?
I wasn't sure
that I was going to have as much [fun] as I ended up having. Just
being out in the fields, we were out at a local farm here. Being out
there with the real farmers and with the kids and we got to spray
off all the fruits and pick them and chop them and eat them right
out there on the farm. It was a lot of fun. I just had a good time.
We did a neighborhood veggie party one episode. Just chatting with
this woman that we called her grandma because she was everybody’s
grandma. Just hearing everybody’s stories and how they like to eat
their vegetables and what it means to them to feed their kids and
their families fresh healthy foods. I'm kind of one of those women
that likes to sit and gab with other women and share stories. So I
think that was a lot of fun for me.
you mentioned earlier some of the vegetables that you learned about
that you had never heard of while you were doing this show. Have you
tried to introduce any of those to your family? And if so what do
You know, I did.
I came home - I had bushels of fresh vegetables after we visited
that farm. We tried everything from the eggplant – which wasn't a
big hit; I'm not going to lie because it got a little slimy. I gave
them jicama – which they dipped in ranch dressing and they loved it
– which they'd never had. Sugar snap peas, which was something that
they didn't know about and they liked those a lot because they’re
kind of sweet and crunchy.
I wanted to know
what your thoughts are on doing a Web series versus being involved,
you know, in a TV series? What differences were there? Or were there
were any differences involved in this project from other projects
you've worked on in the past?
Well I've done
Web series that were purely for entertainment. I did one other Web
series. It was for entertainment. This was more of an educational
angle. I thought it was a great way to sort of partner NBC up with
Hidden Valley Ranch and not only advertise the product but at the
same time teach people some valuable information. I was excited to
jump on board and sort of be the vegetable spokes-lady. And I
learned a lot along the way. It was very easy filming it. It was
something that wasn't a huge time commitment for me. It was quick
and voila, now it’s on the Web and it’s going to be reaching
thousands of people and it’s going to be teaching so many people
about vegetables, these things that they didn't know and different
ways for moms to get their kids to eat veggies.
also that fresh vegetables are really important and everyone knows
that coming out of the ground they’re a lot tastier. Not everyone
can get them right out of the ground. So what’s the next best thing?
Should people only get fresh vegetables? Is it okay to go with
frozen or canned vegetables?
Sure. I think I
would definitely check your community, search for farmer’s markets.
So many areas are having these farmer’s markets or maybe there’s a
little farm stand in your town - I have that up in a town that I
visit - where they just sell vegetables on the roadside, you know,
that they've picked out of their garden. That’s something you can do
if you live in a really rural area. My personal choice if I can't
get fresh I usually go to frozen next. My last resort would be
canned. I don't love canned vegetables. And I don't feel like I'm
eating anything when I'm eating them so that would be my
Yeah. Well they
lose a lot of their nutrients so...
mushy. It’s weird.
Have you taken
any cooking and nutrition classes to prepare for this role? And if
not do you plan to in the future?
Well, I learned a
lot doing this. I think I learned so much about vegetables I don't
need to take any more classes. I feel that I brought home some
really great healthy tips for my family. It’s just about
incorporating those things into their diets, you know.
we be seeing your family on the show?
No. I did this
series with a bunch of really great local kids. We had a lot of fun
out in the fields. But those were not my children, no.
I'm one of those
moms that I've been watching you for years and I have three boys...
Oh thank you.
...so you with
three girls I was like...
Oh it’s a match
made in heaven.
Do they eat
Well my very
first one he’s almost eight now. He started with broccoli because it
was the first thing he could stick on a fork so he loves it. Now
he’s straying away - he still will do it but...
...he’s not such
a fan anymore. I guess he ate too much at a younger age, I don't
You've got to let
him dip it.
yeah. I might just have to pull it out raw with some ranch because
I've always steamed it for him but.
And they also
being boys pretend they’re dinosaurs and they’re eating trees. So
that was a good.
that’s good, baby trees, yep.
Yes baby trees. I
had one question about if Peter enjoys the vegetables as much as you
do? And do you have to do any tricks to get him to eat them?
You know, he is a
boy. I do have to - I honestly have to feed him like I would a child
because if it were up to him - he’s from New York - he would be
eating pizza at every meal and there’s not a vegetable in that
pizza, you know. So he thinks that the tomato sauce is his
vegetable. So I consider him just like one of the kids when I'm
feeding him. I make a balanced meal and they eat it, you know. When
I serve a protein and a vegetable and a carbohydrate they eat it.
They eat what I've prepared for them because I think that they love
sitting down to dinners as a family. He’s just like another little
understand. I do - I have a fourth son, my husband at the dinner
table so he’s the same way. Now that you’re stepping away from your
90210 are you
going to be able to spend more time out there with the girls right
now that you’re taking a little less time on TV?
Yes, we'll be
planting our second garden season here in the city and hopefully
have time to get up to our bigger garden out of town which they
really grow everything up there.
Do you grow
everything organic? When you buy stuff do you buy organic vegetables
or is it fresh just either way?
I used to. I used
to go to Costco and buy the fruits and vegetables there and then I
realized these are not organic in any way shape or form and why are
they so perfect looking like they’re all like giant and perfect. It
got me thinking about the organic choices that I needed to start
making. I do make every effort to buy organic now. It costs more but
sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do it. There are lots
of studies out there that will tell you if you search around on the
Internet - I just read an article, I can't remember what magazine it
was, but it was talking about there’s major offenders of fruits and
vegetables that really cling onto the preservatives and that stuff
that they spray on it. I try to buy the ones that are not going to
suck up the preservatives as much. I keep that in my mind when I'm
shopping. When I'm buying food like strawberries and stuff I
definitely go organic. [The food is] going straight into their
little bodies and I don't want to put all that chemicals and
pesticide. I mean for me there’s no doubt that there’s a connection
with why there are so many cancer cases now as opposed to where it
used to be...
was organic back in the day.
Yeah. So I'm
definitely conscious of it.
I asked my
readers what one question they would want to ask you if they could
and they commented on your youthful appearance and the fact that you
never seem to age. They’re wondering if that has anything to do with
your diet with vegetables? That could possibly be an incentive to
children for the future to look to so that they know that eating
vegetables can help them do the same thing.
Well they don't
even think they’re ever going to age, you know, when you’re a kid
you’re like oh I can eat Doritos at every meal and it’s okay. But as
you get older you start to realize that there’s such a direct
connection with what you put in your body and on your face and your
skin. I try to keep everything as organic and pure as I can. There
are just so many toxic chemicals out there in our food and in our
creams and lotions so I really try to stay organic with my fruits
and vegetables and definitely eat like a very [healthy] diet. It’s
really important to your overall health so your internal organs and
your skin, your beauty. Another thing is to try to keep chemicals
out of your skincare products and your healthcare products.
I agree with you
with the connection between organic and us not using it as much and
the increase in cancer. I've seen it. I've lost several family
members and my husband is only 42 and was just diagnosed with
crazy. I'm so sorry to hear that. It’s like every time you turn
That’s how I feel
so I myself am more interested in looking into organic and learning
about this myself.
Yeah. Yeah you
should check into the content of your deodorant and your sunscreen
and everything that you’re using every day like routine habitual.
Think about that because once you start going there you will start
buying much cleaner products; you won't be able to go back.
I agree, I agree.
It’s scary what you learn when you start to research it.
Did any traveling
for the show to go to any further away farms or anything or if you
mostly stay local?
We stayed local.
We went to Santa Barbara which was great weather and a lot of
beautiful vegetables up there. We went to Underwood Farms which is
local here about 30 minutes out of town. So, yeah, we stayed within
a two hour radius of LA.
I was curious
what other projects you have going on right now if you’re not doing
90210 or if
you have any more educational-type projects or anything else coming
I am the
spokesperson for the American Heart Association so I'm doing a lot
of work with them especially with February coming, which is, you
know, Heart Awareness Month. I am working on a children’s book. I
love kids and I love to read to my kids so I'm working on a book
series for kids. I have all kinds of irons in the fire. My husband
is writing a script that we’re developing for television so we'll
Our mom got us to
eat fruits and vegetables as kids by smothering them in butter and
So that Hidden
Valley Ranch is probably a step up from that.
You know, I'll
take the butter and brown sugar too.
We were wondering
if you ever miss farm life enough that you would want to move back
to your ranch permanently and get out of the city?
that Peter and I talk about a lot. It’s actually where my interest
lies. I just have to get my city boy on board with that.
Have you always
been interested in cooking and cooking shows or is this a new field
I've never done a
Web series sort of with an educational angle like this. My parents
are both teachers so it’s sort of organic to who I am and how I grew
up and I love to share any kind of little tidbits of knowledge that
I have with other ladies or other moms out there. So this was
definitely a new venture for me but something that felt really
comfortable and easy.
I was looking
over the “Garden Party” press release and two things caught my eye
along with the little videos and all that is the Cook and Tell
cookbook and the What’s for Dinner meal planner. I have three little
ones and I'm always asking myself what I'm going to make for dinner
that night, not always prepared. Can you tell us a little bit about
both of those elements?
Right well they
go along with the Web series. They’re just really chocked full of
helpful information that you can take from the Website. It’s just
lots of great tips for moms, ideas, you know… I'm always running out
of ideas what to cook for dinner and how to make a vegetable or how
to get a balanced meal in my kids. So these are just really helpful
tools that parents can sort of have in their toolkit.
Do any of the
recipes hide the vegetables? That seems to be the thing nowadays
you’re seeing all these cookbooks where you’re hiding the
vegetables. Are you doing that?
I do that. I do
that. I'm not 100% familiar with what the content is on [the
website] that they've updated in the product but I definitely do
that with my girls. I make their favorite is spaghetti and I can't
even tell you how many zucchinis yellow and green, big giant onions,
bags full of carrot and fresh garlic that they’re eating and they
have no idea.
See my daughter
is tuned into that; she picks anything chunky or green.
No you have to
husband. You have to puree it really fine then they don't know
anything. Also you have to think about the color like red - if you
can mix a red sauce with it you can totally hide it and they'll
never know. You can also put green - this is crazy - you can put
tons of spinach and broccoli - if you steam it and puree it - into
meatloaf or turkey meatloaf. They don't even know it. If you just
puree it fine enough. Honestly I got that book, you know the first
book - the good book - let’s see, there’s two - there’s the book
with - what’s it called? Sneaky Chef or something? [It is
The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine.] It’s not the Seinfeld
lady’s one. [Deceptively Delicious by Jerry Seinfeld’s wife
Jessica.] It’s not hers. It’s the one that she copied. It’s the
first one. I think it’s called Sneaky Chef and it’s genius.
You have to take like a day to prepare all this stuff and throw it
in your freezer and then you use it and it becomes like habit. It
really makes you feel good as a mom because you know they’re getting
a bunch of vegetables that they wouldn't be getting.
My question is
kind of similar to the one that was right before me but I was going
to tell you that I have a 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 year old and my 1-1/2 year
old will eat anything but my 2-1/2 year old will live on pizza and
nuggets. What I do is I'll make a whole wheat pita and I will just
put all kinds of veggies on top such as spinach, you know, peas,
he'll eat anything on the pizza. So I was going to ask you if you
did something like that where you hid food but you just talked about
the spaghetti. But have you ever done anything like that when you
kids were really small? Did they - did you have trouble feeding them
vegetables when they were toddlers?
Yeah, it might
sound sort of rigid but when they’re hungry enough they'll eat it. I
have three kids and I used to run myself ragged making like three
different meals and trying to please everybody. Now I make a meal
and it’s balanced and we eat it. If you don't eat it I'm sorry
you’re going to be hungry. I have to be really sort of diligent
about that because if I'm not they'll just say I want cereal for
dinner. They know how to manipulate you and control you. So you have
to just sort of take charge when it comes to that.
Yeah. I'm trying
to do better with that because he will eat pretty much any kind of
fruit, he loves bananas and things like that but getting him to eat
green vegetables and things is really difficult. So I'm going to try
Yeah, I would
definitely recommend that book and also just let them try different
kinds of dip. There are lots of different dips out there in the
market and I know Hidden Valley Ranch makes tons of them. They love
to dip stuff oh my gosh.
Yeah, he loves
ketchup and I haven't tried the ranch yet so I think I'm going to
try that and see how that works.
Try it. It worked
at my house definitely.
children changed the way you look at nutrition or were you always a
I took the best
care of myself when I was pregnant and when I was about feeding
someone else. Now I know it’s my sole responsibility to feed these
kids balanced food because if I just let them eat what they want…
they wouldn't be very healthy let’s put it that way. I take it
really seriously because I want them to have the best performance at
school that they can. I want them to be able to run and do whatever
they want to do. I know what a direct impact foods and sugars and
all the simple carbs out there and things that are available to
them. I know how bad that stuff is for them. So I really super
proactive about our meals and what I cook and what they eat
Now I think the
show is based on a great idea. It seems like you’re really giving
great ideas to parents like me who happen to have picky eaters. What
is it that you think that has caused our kids these days to have a
problem with their diets? Do you think it’s just the fast food? Why
would they rather grab something that’s not natural and healthy for
Oh my gosh
because we’re so busy. I mean, everybody’s running a million miles
an hour. And I get it… but it just takes a little bit of thinking
ahead as a parent. As a mom you've got to think ahead to stock your
cabinets with things that you know that they’re going to want and
they’re going to eat. Preparing foods, you walk through the store
and it’s just all prepackaged convenience foods now. You think oh I
could just buy this and be done with it but if you think about it
it’s so much better for you to go home and cook it from scratch –
actually make that meal instead of just open a package. They get so
many more nutrients. I understand moms are busy, moms work, moms
have a lot going on but you just have to sort of plan it into your
day how you’re going to better feed your kids. You just start
feeding them a more balanced healthy diet. Like I said when I make a
meal for my family I set it down and we eat it; there’s no griping
