I just finished cutting my second episode of Fooditude, a new web series that changes kids’ attitudes towards healthy eating.  The series is produced by Elise Jaffe, executive producer at Big Teeth Productions and Jodi Balis, a registered dietitian at Red Lentil Consulting. I have taken the reigns as editor for the second series, building upon my existing food/cooking broadcast experience (Kai Time on the Road, BetterTV).

Each series consists of five webisodes, featuring Chef Joshua, and kids Charlie, Lydia, and Keaton. This series is about a food all kids love, pizza!  The first episode takes the kids to Apart Pizza, a unique pizzeria in Chicago that specializes in nutritious pizza creations.  Watch the episode above to learn about their highly unusual pizza toppings.  In the second episode, the kids head to Bennison’s Bakery to learn how bread is made.  The series will continue with more episodes exploring the pizza theme, including heading to Chicago Green City Market to pick vegetables for toppings, learning about where produce comes from, and then the kids will make their own healthy pizza inventions!

The videos are paired up with teachers’ curriculums for schools, so students are studying healthy eating lessons in the classroom that are reinforced by the content of the web series.

While I have experience working with food television, this was my first time cutting a show that specifically featured kids. Their excitement and youthful enthusiasm on their path of discovery make these stories so much fun to cut! I hope to be doing more kids programing in the future!

Keep an eye out for the next webisode coming in a couple weeks.  In the meantime, please check out www.fooditude.tv to learn more about this program!
