Claire and Bill Wurtzel lead fun workshops in NYC schools to improve children’s eating habits. Children learn the importance of a healthy, balanced breakfast, the meal that sets the tone for the day and helps them stay focused in school.
Bill models how to create imaginative breakfasts combining food groups that follow ChooseMyPlate.gov guidelines.
In this hands-on, playful atmosphere, nutrition lessons are learned and remembered. While these workshops are successful, the goal is to be integrated into an obesity initiative that has the resources to make the learning sustainable.
