I’m all for healthy eating. I’m also all for chocolate. I’m THAT complicated.
PBS Kids has teamed up with Whole Foods, a store I appreciate but struggle to support because WHY IS EVERY PIECE OF FRUIT FLOWN IN FROM AT LEAST 5000 MILES AWAY!?, to promote healthy eating to families. Yeah, I just went all Caps-Lock in the middle there. Deal.
But I like anything and anyone, pretty much, who makes an effort at convincing parents to stop feeding their kids shitty, boring foods. Also, I’d like to see less 200 lb ten-year-olds in the world. It’s getting pretty gross out there. Look around in horror.
So dig in with PBS Kids, and their new show PEG + CAT, to explore new foods with your children. I made a commitment to eat veggies and fruit when I became a dad, because I wanted my children to grow up healthier than I did, to understand where their food comes from, and to see me always trying new flavors and preparations. It’s not hard, people. You just have to care.
