Teach Your Kids to … Chop Chop!

Sally Sampson is our latest hero. She’s the brains behind ChopChop, a new magazine and web site aimed at teaching kids ages 5 – 12 to cook fun, healthy meals.

The magazine is filled with nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse and inexpensive recipes, and contains games, a question-and-answer section and interesting and little-known food facts.

Sally wants “to educate kids to cook and become nutritionally literate, to empower them to actively participate as health partners with their families and to help establish and support better eating habits for a lifetime of good nutrition.” As a by-product, she hopes that her efforts will aid in preventing or reversing the current crisis in childhood obesity.

We get it. When kids gain mastery and control over their own eating style they’re SO much more likely to own it. Any mom who’s placed a kid in front of a blender with an assortment of different berries and fruits and some lowfat frozen yogurt has seen the masterpiece that can result.

ChopChop offers that, and so much more.  The magazine has distributed 150,000 copies of the first issue to homes, schools and physicians’ offices in 50 states. The annual subscription rate is $9.95, so go to the web site, take a look, and pick that puppy up for your family.

First Mama Michelle Obama and Jamie Oliver have endorsed it, too. So join the club!
