Guy Fieri's not only interested in diners, drive-ins and dives. He's also passionate about empowering today's parents to include their children in the kitchen and educate them about eating healthy. Fieri helped draft California state legislation proclaiming the second Saturday in May annually as "Cook With Your Kids Day." While it was passed unanimously by the California State Legislature in 2008, in April 2011, Guy received a new resolution that recognizes "Cook With Your Kids Day" every Sunday.
Invited by the US Navy Team to cook at the White House, Guy spoke to politicians about making this a nationally recognized holiday. In August 2010, he officially launched CWK (Cooking With Kids), a program that encourages developing healthy eating habits to address the childhood obesity crisis and strengthen families by sharing quality time in the kitchen.
We caught up with Fieri at the recent Better Homes & Gardens and Weber Chill & Grill festival. Click the video to hear more about Cooking with Kids and how he gets his own kids interested in food. (Hint: chicken wings!)
