ED JENKINS, Creator & Day Dreamer
Hi! I’m Ed Jenkins, creator of Lalo’s Lunchbox, a high-energy children’s video series focused on teaching kids how to eat good food and do good deeds. I have over 20 years of getting children laughing while learning. I believe it is desperately important in our culture to help children learn how to have healthy bodies AND it’s equally important to help them learn how to be loving and kind.
If you’ve been around kids, you know these things don’t always come naturally! So I’ve created video entertainment that captures the short attention span of preschool and early elementary-aged children. Within 3 minutes my character Lalo, his magic Lunchbox and his friend Daisy discover fruit and vegetable recipes while learning a social skill. (Take a look at how Daisy learns patience as she helps make strawberry jam: here!) So far I have 12 videos that cover everything from bananas and brie, to serving and sharing. You can watch the playlist on YouTube (and parents, it’s a great way to entertain your kids while you wait in the grocery store checkout line!)
