New Sesame Street Character Teaches Kids About Food — And Hunger

posted by Nell Minow

In observance of World Food Day, “Sesame Street” has a new toolkit to help families make good decisions about food, so that even those on a limited budget can make meals that help families grow and stay healthy.  A new Muppet character named Lily is one of the 17 million children in America who do not have a reliable source for their next meal.  “Sesame Street” allows Lily to tell her story to help children who watch develop empathy and kindness, to give children in poverty a character they can identify with so they will not feel as isolated, and to remind everyone of the importance of access to wholesome and nourishing food.  Lily will not be a regular on the show, but appears in “Sesame Street’s” special on food and on the website.
