Food Thoughts

Explore Healthy Food for Kids and Families with Puppy Chef Puprika!

Healthy eating and food education are essential to preparing the very youngest members of our community for school and life. Pilot Light and WTTW present FOOD THOUGHTS, an animated seven-part series of one-minute videos. Hosted by Pilot Light’s own puppy chef, “Puprika,” each FOOD THOUGHTS episode is based on one of Pilot Light’s Food Education Standards, which define holistic food education. Watch FOOD THOUGHTS below where Puprika and a diverse group of children and families visit homes, gardens, farms, and schools to explore where food comes from and how to make healthy choices. Check out Pilot Light's Food Education Center for free food education lessons and resources for home and school!
