Marion Nestle (Food Politics) Shares ‘Mr. Zee’s Apple Factory’!

I’m so excited to share with you today’s post on Marion Nestle’s influential Food Politics blog:  a write-up of my rhyming kids’ video about processed food, “Mr. Zee’s Apple Factory“!  Wow!


I also want to thank the many TLT friends – readers and fellow bloggers – who’ve continued to give the video a little push now and then on Facebook and Twitter.  I haven’t felt so passionate about any project since I started The Lunch Tray three years ago and it’s gratifying to watch the video’s slow but steady spread on the Internet.  Even more gratifying is hearing from parents and teachers who’ve told me how much their kids liked watching it — and that they clearly understood the message about healthful eating.

Thanks again, and have a great holiday weekend!

    Bettina, that is a great achievement and wonderful to hear. Congratulations!

    I believe in what you are doing. I think it is a wonderful idea.

    Children need to learn more about nutrition and making healthy choices. They also need something that they can have fun with and relate to.

    That is what you are doing.

    We need to educate children before they become so ingrained with negative habits that it is an uphill battle to overcome them.

    Children are little sponges. If we start teaching them young they will soak all of that information up and be able to make healthy decisions for years to come.
