I want you to meet Chloe, she is one of the kids in our Health4Life Program. She is very talented. She loves to sing and dance and has a bubbly, infectious personality.
You will see in this video that she discovered—much to her surprise—that she also loves Brussels sprouts. Yes, Brussels sprouts!
As you saw, Chloe’s family incorporated the Brussels sprouts in scrambled eggs, and she loved it. And she wants to eat more of them. I’m proud of Chloe and her family and their journey to become Strong4Life. This is just the first episode in her journey, so stay tuned for more.
Speaking of Brussels sprouts…I read an article on Slate, that talks about how Brussels sprouts are one of the most hated vegetables. The author, a mother of three, tried a new recipe that included Brussels sprouts and the kids actually liked the meal (well, two of the three did).
Could Brussels sprouts be suffering from a bad reputation? Maybe they need another chance!
