MPB Bringing Educational Tool to Local Children

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.

    Mr Ed needs to go over to high school and teach the admin about honesty and mentoring these kids. Also teach them about doing and providing the best for these children and tell them how the good ole boy system is not a good thing for the school.

    You think Ed can teach some of our teachers and administrators about how to tell the truth, have integrity, not to cover things up, and how to be role models to our children.
