This iReport is part of an assignment:
Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move challenge
Making Mealtime Fun, Fighting Obesity
- JacqueCNN, CNN iReport producer
Played at mealtime, kids earn points for eating a balanced and colorful plate of veggies, fruits, proteins and grains. Bonus points for trying new foods and good manners!
The game works because it makes mealtime simple and fun, empowers kids to choose nutritious foods for themselves and encourages family time at the table. Plus, a portion of each purchase* supports non-profit children’s programs including FoodCorps, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, and Alice Waters’ Edible Schoolyard.
This short video tells the story of how my picky eaters turned into healthy eaters playing the game. http://youtu.be/7KBJ9_xDecU
I am honored that something grown from our family table is able to help other families, and contribute to the fight against childhood obesity.
