Michelle Obama announced launch of new children’s cooking show on Netflix


“I’m beyond thrilled to share that on March 16, I’ll be launching a new show on @Netflix called Waffles + Mochi!,” Michelle Obama tweeted in a recent surprise announcement. “I’m excited for families and children everywhere to join us on our adventures as we discover, cook and eat delicious food from all over the world.”

The preschool series entitled, Waffles + Mochi, a family show, will encourage healthy eating and cooking.

Waffles + Mochi is a continuation of the work that Obama did when she was in the White House. As a part of the “Let’s Move!” campaign, she made it her mission to help end childhood obesity and promote healthy eating. 

Per Eaterthe show was slated to “take young children and their families around the globe on an adventure that tells us the story of our food.” Reportedly, Jeremy Konner of Drunk History is a co-creator of the show along with actress/producer Erika Thormahlen.

Waffles + Mochi is scheduled to hit the airwaves on March 6th. 

Looking for some tips on how to encourage your kids to eat healthier? Well, check out these top five tips from the experts below. 

1. Get them involved in making the meal. Getting kids involved in helping to prepare healthy meals will teach them how to cook. It will also teach them how to eat healthily. 

2. Make healthy snacks available. Make healthy snacks available instead of junk food. Kids will have no choice but to eat the healthy snacks when they are hungry. Apples and carrot sticks will eventually become their “go to.”  

3. Be a good influence. Kids mimic what their parents do. So, if you are eating healthily, so will they. 

4. Make food art. Get creative and make food fun. Create things like a ladybug sandwich, a Humpty Dumpty creation or healthy butterflies.

5. Be consistent. Make sure that this is a consistent thing and not just a fad. Healthy eating habits take time to develop, but are well worth the journey in the long run.
