Nonprofit publisher of award-winning cooking magazine for families expands reach to older adults
Premiere Issue supported by AARP Foundation
Belmont, MA [February 1, 2017]— ChopChop Kids, the nonprofit publisher of the award-winning ChopChop: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families, has launched Seasoned: Real Food for Healthy Living at 50+. Seasoned is a quarterly cooking magazine for adults 50 and older, providing fun, delicious and creative ways to prepare snacks and meals. The premiere issue, supported by AARP Foundation, will be available in early February 2017.
“ChopChop’s mission is to inspire and teach families to cook and eat real food together,” said Sally Sampson, founder and president of ChopChop Kids. “We know there can be new challenges due to changing family structures as we get older. Our goal is to help older adults feel confident about cooking affordable, healthy meals for themselves.”
Seasoned pays special attention to seniors’ nutritional needs. The 24-page, full-color magazine offers recipes and practical cooking advice, with the goal of making it easy and fun to eat healthy. Even accomplished cooks can benefit from the recommended tips for healthy cooking: Each issue will feature skill-building how-tos, budget-stretching ideas, mental health boosters, social tips, nutrition awareness, and recipes for delicious and easy meals older adults can make at home.
“Seasoned is a great fit with AARP Foundation’s work to ensure that low-income older adults have nutritious food,” said AARP Foundation senior vice president Emily Allen. “We are thrilled to partner with ChopChop on this premiere issue to bring affordable, healthful recipes and guidance to adults over 50.”
