ChopChop Magazine, a nonprofit quarterly food magazine for kids aged 5-12 and their families, has been named a winner of a 2013 Parents' Choice Magazine Award (Gold).
Jessica Hensley, writing on the Parents' Choice Foundation website, praises the magazine: "ChopChop's mission is to 'inspire and teach kids to cook and eat real food with their families.' With a healthy dose of delicious recipes, fun facts about food and cooking, and a format that is very easy for kids to follow, they are clearly succeeding."
Established in 1978, Parents' Choice Foundation has been reviewing and recommending children's media to provide parents with reliable and unbiased information about high quality products. The awards are determined by a panel of educators, scientists, artists, librarians, parents, and children.
"It is truly an honour to receive this prestigious award from the country's oldest evaluator of children's media. We are proud to be the only cooking magazine to win a coveted Parents' Choice Gold Award," said Sally Sampson , Founder and President of ChopChopKids, the publisher of ChopChop Magazine.
Parents' Choice Awards Committees identify the very best products for children of different ages and backgrounds, and of varied skill and interest levels. The Parents' Choice Awards® program has established the benchmarks of achievement in children's media. Approximately 20% of those items submitted to the Parents' Choice Awards™ program receive a commendation in one of the six award levels: Classic, Gold, Silver, Recommended, Approved, and Fun Stuff.
