Parents usually say they are busy and not always have time to make home cook meals at night and prepare good lunch boxes for their children. There could be a market for nutritionally-sound lunch-boxes, delivered fresh daily.

[ah-nah-EES] commented on WHAT'S FOR DINNER!? - The last class of the day

love it! just as the "role models" idea, I like that it bring kids into the kitchen and integrates them with food in a more practical way. I found this could be less abstract than telling kids about what ingredients, produces or type of foods are better than others, to actually provide healthy foods for them to try and like. (example: making and trying broccoli quiche, as opposed to being told by someone that broccoli is a good thing to eat) (also prepared dishes are closer to what you actually might find at the dinner table or a restaurant menu)

I actually see this as a great model for a TV show. it seems to me that kids do look up to teenagers. having other kids be part of the show as cooking assistants could also increase the factor of identification. I like this idea since, by picking recipes that are kid friendly, it shows that cooking is within the range of kids and teenagers, and, as some of the inspirations were pointing out, kids/teens do tend to eat things they have helped prepared. the hurdle is trying to address is the prevalent mentality of telling kids to stay away from the kitchen ("cause is dangerous", "cause they will make a mess", etc) and instead integrate them with activities and recipes that are age appropriate.

[ah-nah-EES] commented on Shopping cart provokes healthier purchases

wow! I think this is a great idea because it recognizes the large influence parent's choices have in shaping kid's behaviors over time. By promoting healthier eating at home, I would expect kids to become familiar (and developed less resistance) to all food groups. It starts at home, kids tend to imitate what adults do, that's how they learn pretty much everything.
