New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition & Health to Launch Innovative Partnership with Award-Winning Children’s Anti-Obesity Organization, ChopChop Kids
Date:8/22/2014

Watertown, MA (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

The New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition & Health (IFNH) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey has joined forces with ChopChop Kids, an innovative children’s media organization, to educate young people about health and nutrition in a new partnership that will build on the strengths of both organizations.

The partnership will encompass quarterly custom editions of ChopChop Magazine, a health communications fellowship program, and video communications. ChopChop Magazine features plenty of child-friendly recipes, proper cooking practices, fitness instruction, and exciting food choices for children to explore. Additional opportunities for symposia, research and collaboration with the Institute’s new Center for Childhood Nutrition Education & Research, which is dedicated to educating children about nutrition, are envisioned.

“We are delighted to work with our partners at IFNH,” says Sally Sampson, president and founder of ChopChop Kids. “The alignment in our missions, plus our experience in communities across the US in addressing childhood obesity, can have tremendous impact as the institute focuses on ways to stem the epidemic of obesity and rise in obesity-related disorders such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.”

Peter Gillies, the director of the IFNH, says “ChopChop brings a fresh and direct approach to educating children and families about health and nutrition through the pages of its magazine and its connection to cooking. We believe distribution of the magazine along with other communications efforts will help us reach out to the community.”
