As a recipient of a Kids Eat Right Crew mini-grant, it was a very rewarding
experience for me to share the information in the Kids Eat Right toolkit promoting
healthy breakfast to elementary school children, and to observe how they learned
and enjoyed at the same time.

I presented about Kids Eat Right as part of a session at a conference in Israel about childhood obesity, with speakers from Israel, Venezuela and the U.S. Many commented that they loved the Kids Eat Right gala video. I was happy to share something so inspirational with them. I think that we lit many fires! Now, we have much work ahead. Let's keep up the momentum!

Hong Kong

I am a Kids Eat Right Campaign Member in Hong Kong and a recipient of the Family Meals mini-grant. I translated the Family Meals for Parent toolkit into Chinese, which will be included in our International Kids Eat Right Library. Using the translated toolkit, I conducted two parent sessions to Chinese audience, one in the United Kingdom and one in Hong Kong. During the events, everyone enjoyed the jacket potato, so my worries that they wouldn't accept it was unfounded. Surprisingly, evaluation forms showed that many didn't even know potato skins are edible! Salsa made with green and red pepper was also widely loved!
