HATFIELD, Mass. (Mass Appeal) - We're always trying to get our kids to eat healthy and get out and exercise, but between fried foods, video games and computers, it's hard to get our kids motivated. Barbara Storper is the Founder and Executive Director of FoodPlay and she came onto Mass Appeal to tell us how we can make eating healthy fun for our kids and how we can inspire them to get out and exercise. The cast of FoodPlay also showed us a snippet of their touring show.
