Healthy food is fun! The hit kid’s show Waffles + Mochi uses a colorful universe and quirky characters to illustrate this concept for skeptical young eaters. Now there’s another way to immerse yourself in their world, thanks to a collaboration between Walmart, Partnership for a Healthier America and Higher Ground Productions.
The Hidden World of Waffles + Mochi launched online today and features 20 different activities centered around 10 different ingredients from the series. You’ll find interactive recipes, games and video clips from the show. Better yet, as you complete activities, you’ll unlock donations from Walmart to the Partnership for a Healthier America’s Pass the Love campaign to help feed food-insecure families across the country.
“I’ve long said that supporting parents and helping our kids build healthy habits isn’t just a job for nonprofits or governments – the private sector has a critical role to play as well. That’s why I am proud to see Walmart continuing to lead the way with The Hidden World of Waffles + Mochi, a wonderful food adventure that not only educates families on how to make quick and easy meals at home, but also teaches kids that they can give back to their community at any age,” said Former First Lady and PHA Honorary Chair, Michelle Obama.
Ready to dive in? Visit the new site on any device and choose an ingredient, ranging from tomatoes to eggs. The activities will help your family put a fresh twist on food you regularly eat, or help your picky child try something new.
Once kids master an ingredient, they receive a badge, just like on the show. That badge unlocks a donation and through May 31, Walmart has committed to donating up to $1 million to the campaign to help feed families in need. Pay it forward while you play together!
