In an encore of The Business Beat, Steve Jones-D'Agostino interviews Sally Sampson, founder and president of ChopChopKids. They talk about inspiring and teaching children and families to cook real food together. This episode aired originally on August 12, 2018.

ChopChopKids is an innovative non-profit organization that believe that cooking and eating together as a family is a vital step in resolving the obesity and hunger epidemics. The ChopChopKids philosophy has three elements:

  • We believe in the simple values of cooking together as family and sharing healthy, delicious meals.
  • We don’t do calorie counts or post nutrition content, but everything in our publication is reviewed and approved by our medical and nutrition advisors.
  • We don’t demonize any individual foods.

Dr. David Ludwig, director of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children's Hospital, states, "We can debate whether the perfect diet is low in fat, low in carbs or high in protein.  But a much more fundamental issue is our relationship with food.  ChopChop is introducing a generation of children (and their parents) to cooking, establishing a healthy lifestyle from the start.” Referring to the quarterly ChopChop Magazine, which is published in English and Spanish, he adds, “Keep a copy in your kitchen." And, the James Beard Journalism Awards named ChopChop Magazine its 2013 Publication of the Year, stating, “ChopChop demonstrates that a print publication with the right message can still shine.”
