This week on The Children’s Hour we are joined by FoodPlay Productions. It is an Emmy Award-winning, nutrition education company that creates fun-fun-filled tools, resources, and programs to make nutrition come alive for children across the country.
FoodPlay’s shows, educational resources, and media campaigns have earned a host of national awards, outstanding evaluations, and rave reviews for their innovation and effectiveness in improving the nutrition and health habits of the nation’s youth.
FoodPlay Productions’ programs and resources have been created under sponsorship by the US Department of Agriculture, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation, and Departments of Public Health and Education throughout the country. They collaborate with school districts, government agencies, corporate partners, and community organizations to create customized programs that address the unique and diverse needs of population groups in order to trigger school-wide excitement, engaging stakeholders to work together to create healthy school environments with access to healthy food for all.
Plus we are joined by Jon Ghahate, Museum Cultural Educator at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to teach us about indigenous American foods. What everyday foods came from the Western Hemisphere?
All this plus great music sure to make you hungry, and celebrate delicious nutritious food, glorious food, this week on The Children’s Hour.
