Netflix has come up with an interesting kids’ series “Waffles + Mochi” which is all about discovering new healthy recipes from across the globe with the help of puppet pals ‘Waffles’ and ‘Mochi’. The season-1 of the series consists of 10 episodes, and it is made under the production house of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions. The series is a great mix of Sesame Street and Salt Fat Acid and Heat (you’ll know the excitement of the show if you watched it before 😉 ) This engaging series is based on the concept of providing viewers especially kids interesting facts and history behind some of the essential food ingredients. Also, kids can learn from the series how to cook food easily using fresh ingredients.

The best thing about this series is that it is promoting healthy food and telling about its benefits in an easy and understandable language. Each episode is focussed on different food ingredients such as potato, rice, mushroom, eggs, tomato and so on. Apart from this, the content focuses on giving short life lessons with the help of cooking that it’s totally fine to make mistakes and learn from them. Also, the show talks about the importance of working together to resolve any problem. These are indeed big lessons not only for kids but also for everyone irrespective of their age group. And it’s good that kids learn and inculcate these lessons and healthy food habits from a young age.
The enthralling part of the “Waffles + Mochi” series are the puppet characters ‘Waffles’ and ‘Mochi’ who have directly connected to the viewers with their innocent, cute and funny talks. Plus, Michelle Obama is also a part of this series and is portraying as a friendly supermarket owner who has helped and encouraged puppet pals ‘Waffles’ and ‘Mochi’ to take upon a global food adventure.
The result of the show is something really amazing for the kids as well as the adults; It is a blend of puppetry, food-travel documentary, songs, sketches and more all this aimed towards kids to have fun in the kitchen. What better way than to make your kids curious about food. No doubt, this travel cum food exploring series is making food cooking fun, and also it is conveying a great message of “Healthy eating, Healthy living”. So, eat well, live well and most importantly…be well.
