Modeling Puppet Behavior

The Mattel Corporation has found a new avenue for teaching kids about proper nutrition. The company’s Mattel Children’s Foundation recently allocated $15,000 to a Florida-based traveling puppet show to teach the state’s elementary-school children the fundamentals of healthy eating and regular exercise. Orlando’s Michelee Puppets Inc., a nonprofit organization, uses challenges, laughter and audience participation during its show, known as Extreme Health Challenge. The puppet show is expected to reach 120 Florida schools this school year.
