CELEBRITY CHEF AARÓN SÁNCHEZ COOKS UP HEALTHY FAMILY EATING HABITS FOR BACK-TO-SCHOOL Aarón Sánchez is an award-winning chef, TV personality, cookbook author and philanthropist. He is the Chef/Partner of Johnny Sánchez restaurants in New Orleans and Baltimore, and the co-star of Food Network’s Chopped and Chopped Junior. Aarón is passionate about preserving his family’s legacy through food and encouraging diversity in the kitchen. Aarón shares that being a father has given him a deeper purpose in life – to provide for his son, and set an example for him. His family is his foundation and food is what brings them all together. Aarón believes cooking is a collaborative effort and provides an important opportunity to share quality time and meals with his family. As a dad Aarón has found that “you shouldn’t forget to get the kids involved in meal planning. If they’re part of the process, chances are they’ll select the healthy choices they enjoy the most and will be more likely to eat them.” The close of summer marks an excellent opportunity to stir up new healthy habits for your kids and the entire family. After all, good nutrition is important for learning and that includes breakfast, lunch, snack time and dinner. Among the must- have ingredients in the Sánchez kitchen are grapes from California, which are versatile and can be enjoyed as a snack or incorporated into your favorite dishes including salads and desserts. Today we join Chef Aarón Sánchez as he demonstrates and tells the audience how to easily incorporate a healthy eating program into their back-to-school to do list this year. Aarón is a Chef Ambassador for WhyHunger and Food Bank NYC. He is also a mentor for Chefs Move!, a scholarship program in New Orleans, LA. He’s an avid music lover and writes poetry. He’s also known for his many tattoos and is a partner in a world-famous New York City tattoo shop.
