Kickin Kitchen.TV’s executive producer Natasha Lance Rogoff was the former producer of Sesame Street International. Rogoff is dedicated to helping kids stay strong and healthy, while fighting obesity and its damaging effects.  Think Glee for foodies; a positive message layered with entertainment.
Cooking and food can be a fascinating topic for youngsters and their parents, and research has proven that they can help kids learn important skills such as:
  Encouraging kids to try healthy foods.
   Kids feel like they are accomplishing something and contributing to the family.
    Kids are more likely to sit down to a family meal when they helped prepare it.
     Parents get to spend quality time with their children.
     Kids aren’t spending time in front of the TV while they’re cooking.
      Families have more positive interactions and supply positive reinforcement.
      Kids generally aren’t eating junk food when they’re cooking a meal at home.
