ChopChop Children's Food Magazine Wins Coveted Beard Award
Date:5/3/2013

Watertown, MA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

ChopChop: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families, a quarterly food magazine created to promote healthy eating amongst school-aged children and their families, has been awarded the prestigious 2013 James Beard Foundation Award for Publication of the Year.

The Beard Awards, considered by many to be the Oscars of the food world, were presented at a ceremony in New York City on Friday evening, May 3 at New York’s Gotham Hall.

ChopChopKids, the non-profit behind ChopChop Magazine, was founded in 2010 by Beard-nominated cookbook author Sally Sampson. The organization’s mission: To inspire and teach kids to cook real food with their families through its namesake magazine, which offers nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse and inexpensive recipes, as well as interesting and little-known food facts, games and Q and As.

Since its launch, ChopChopKids has reached more than two million families annually through the distribution of ChopChop Magazine, a quarterly publication available in both English and Spanish. The magazine is distributed to children and families via doctors, hospitals, and youth-based community organizations, as well as through schools, after-school programs, food banks, farmers’ markets, grocery stores and individual subscriptions. The magazine is available in every U.S. state and seven countries.

The James Beard Publication of the Year Award recognizes a publication—in magazine, newspaper, or digital format—that demonstrates fresh directions, worthy ambitions, and a forward-looking approach to food journalism. ChopChop Magazine is the only non-profit publication ever to win the award.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the James Beard Foundation," says Sally Sampson, founder and president of ChopChopKids, and publisher of ChopChop Magazine. “This recognition will help ChopChopKids further our goal of eliminating obesity, by getting kids in the kitchen and making real, healthy food with their families. Kids who cook cultivate a lifetime of healthy habits -- they won’t need to be reminded about what they should be eating. We focus on the fun, and the rest follows naturally.”

Endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and named as a “Best Practice in Childhood Obesity Prevention” by the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, ChopChop is distributed to more than 10,000 pediatricians’ offices nationwide— nearly half of all pediatric practices in the United States. And, through the generosity of the New Balance Foundation and the rest of its partners committed to child nutrition, ChopChop is distributed to neighborhood health centers and afterschool programs in underserved communities. All proceeds from subscriptions and donations help support the distribution of ChopChop to low-income families.

The James Beard Foundation Awards are the nation’s preeminent recognition program honoring professionals in the food and beverage industries. Founded in 1986, the James Beard Foundation is dedicated to celebrating, nurturing, and preserving America’s diverse culinary heritage and future. For more information, please visit jamesbeard.org.
