The numbers are stunning. Nearly one out of every three American children is obese or at a risk of becoming obese—25 million children in all, with children in minority families at an even greater risk.

Kid2Kid, Inc, (note: we’ve recently changed our corporate name to ChopChopKids) publishes ChopChop, The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families. Most copies are given away free to pediatric practices and family-support organizations in underserved communities. You may also subscribe at www.chopchopmag.com.
Our mission:
• Teach kids to cook and to be nutritionally curious and literate
• Empower kids to actively participate as health partners with their families & doctors
• Establish and support better eating habits for a lifetime of good nutrition
• Facilitate bonding between children and their parents/caregivers
• Stem the tide of unhealthy children who are growing into unhealthy adults
