Fourteen-year-old Amber Kelley knows what kids want to eat. She knows kids want to eat delicious foods, and that deep down, kids want to eat foods that make them smarter, stronger, and feel good.

But it’s not so easy when school lunches consist of processed foods, and classrooms host birthday parties with cupcakes every other day. To top it off, Amber knows firsthand the pressures from other kids to eat “cool” packaged foods. In the second grade, Amber was bullied about her healthy home-packed lunches. This inspired her to prove that “being healthy is cool” by starting a blog and YouTube show, Cook with Amber, featuring Amber in the kitchen making her delicious, easy family recipes.

“Keep up the effort, you’re really inspiring lots of people.”Jamie Oliver
