Yesterday I was interview by Tania Lopez of Coqui the Chef. Coqui is based out of the Bronx, NY and this lovable Puerto Rican frog promotes healthy eating among children! You can find Coqui visiting schools cooking nutritious foods and creating awareness around health and wellness. Tania believes in indigenous eating and went back to her roots and what she believes constitutes healthy eating; whole ingredients, creating food with love in your heart, and Coqui not only speaks about consciousness around food, but he “reminds us that food is more than something we eat; it creates and defines us…most of all it connects us.”
This summer and currently, I am working with kids in after-school programs teaching nutrition. Tania asked me some questions pertaining to my working with kids and I was honored to be a guest on her show.
The questions she asked me were:
- Will kids eat healthy food?
- Do kids enjoy being in the kitchen?
- What are some healthy recipes for common kid favorite foods?
- What are some tricks to getting kids to eat veggies?
You can hear the entire interview here (it’s about 15 min)! I hope it presents you with insightful and interesting information!
