Mississippi Public Broadcasting is promoting healthier lifestyles for children in a way it hopes will have a lasting impression.
Ed Said will appear Friday at 1:30 p.m. at Southeast Lauderdale Elementary School to share his message of making healthy eating choices.
"I am telling them to choose healthy eating, like instead of fried foods, eat baked foods. And instead of a Twinkie, grab a strawberry, because it tastes so much better," said Ed. "And you know what? If you have more energy, you get to play more, and that's what it's all about really."
You might have seen him on MPB. Ed Said uses rhyming, rapping and dancing to make his point. He says he hopes he can teach children to adopt healthier lifestyles.
