ChopChopKids is an innovative non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and teach
children and families to cook real food together. We believe that cooking and eating together as a family is a vital step in resolving the obesity and hunger epidemics.
THE CHOPCHOP FOOD PHILOSOPHY
- 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.
WHO LOVES US
"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. Keep a copy in your kitchen."
–David Ludwig, MD, PhD, Director, New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center, Boston Children's Hospital
“What makes ChopChop so great is not only Sampson's choice of subject, appealing and respectful design and language, bright colors and surprisingly sophisticated food photography; it's her choice of recipes.“
