ChopChop Magazine for Kids
I subscribe to a fair share of food and nutrition magazines: Vegetarian Times, Eating Well, Prevention, Shape, Fitness, and Nutrition Action Health Letter to name a few. But the other day I received a new nutrition magazine in the mail, ChopChop, and it’s content, pictures, and colors blew me away.
ChopChop is a quarterly food magazine for kids aged 5-12 and their families. ChopChop’s mission is to educate kids to cook and be nutritionally literate, empower them to actively participate as health partners with their families and help establish and support better eating habits for a lifetime of good nutrition. ChopChop’s vision is to reverse and prevent childhood obesity. The non-profit magazine is filled with nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse and inexpensive recipes, as well as interesting and little-known food facts, Q&A’s and games.
ChopChop has a stellar and very active Advisory Board, including big names in healthcare, nutrition and childhood education like Walter Willett, MD, MPH, of Harvard School of Public Health and cookbook author Mollie Katzen.
As soon as I opened ChopChop, I hungrily read every single page of the fall and winter issues. The recipes would make any kid (and parent) happy, the games are fun, the exercise, food, and health tips are interesting, and the photos are bright and cheery. I remember when I was a kid I subscribed to Disney Adventures and Sports Illustrated for Kids magazines. I would have loved to receive ChopChop in the mail every month! This magazine is great for kids who love learning about cooking, growing veggies, and food facts, but also those who may be more “selective eaters” who need some nudging in the kitchen.
You can subscribe to the magazine here for $14.95 or you can win a subscription! ChopChop magazine is offering one of my readers a year subscription to the magazine. Just leave me a comment telling me what magazines you currently get in the mail. I’ll pick a random winner on Thursday.
