Kids who cook cultivate a lifetime of healthy habits.
Watertown, MA (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
ChopChop: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families, a quarterly food magazine created to teach and inspire school-aged kids to cook real food with their families, will now be included as a resource on Healthy Kids Out of School’s new website Healthy Kids Hub (http://www.healthykidshub.org), an online resource for out-of-school programs.
Healthy Kids Out of School is an initiative of ChildObesity180 in collaboration with Tufts University. The Healthy Kids Out of School initiative worked with some of the country’s leading out-of-school-time organizations to create a unified set of principles around healthy eating and physical activity so that children will hear consistent, healthy messages, across out-of-school-time programs:
- Drink Right: Choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages.
- Move More: Boost movement and physical activity in all programs.
- Snack Smart: Fuel up on fruits and vegetables.
“We are pleased to offer ChopChop Magazine as a resource for out-of-school programs as a way to address the childhood obesity epidemic,” says Sally Sampson, founder of ChopChopKids, the non-profit behind ChopChop Magazine. “Our vision is to get ChopChop Magazine in the hands of every school-aged child. Kids who cook cultivate a lifetime of healthy habits.”
Endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and named as a “Best Practice in Childhood Obesity Prevention” by the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, ChopChop Magazine offers nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse and inexpensive recipes, as well as interesting and little-known food facts, games and Q and As. Subscriptions to ChopChop Magazine will be made available to Hub users at a discount, as well as a complimentary case of the Spring issue while supplies last.
