Delish reports that "Walmart is teaming up with Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) and Higher Ground Productions to release The Hidden World of Waffles + Mochi which is based on the Netflix show and will inspire families to cook healthy foods with all sorts of ingredients.
"The content will be accessible on any device by visiting Walmart.com/wafflesandmochi. Once you're there, you can find 20 different activities each centered around 10 ingredients. The activities will include ingredients like tomatoes, mushrooms, eggs, and rice, and will show viewers how to use these foods in their everyday dishes. There will be interactive games for kids to play like Mash Me If You Can! and Corn Hole that will teach them about nutritious foods."
Higher Ground Productions was created by former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; the former First Lady hosts "Waffles + Mochi" on Netflix. She released a statement: "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."

Anything we can do to encourage kids to eat better food and understand the pleasures of fresh products is a good thing, and in this case, I think it is terrific that Walmart, Netflix and the Obamas are teaming up to spread the word.
