My name is Todd Kupper, a.k.a. Taddo. I am a Registered Dietitian and a Licensed Nutritionist in the state of Pennsylvania. I am also an award-winning professional magician who has developed a unique program called 'The Magic of Nutrition'. This is designed to combat the growing number of children and adolescents who are struggling with nutritional issues such as obesity, lack of activity and poor food choices. My education in nutrition and my experience as a magician is a winning combination! Along with the increased demand for nutrition education in schools, there is an ongoing dilemma on how to present these programs in a fun, interactive environment while capturing and maintaining the childrens interest.
'The Magic of Nutrition' is the perfect way to incorporate comedy, audience participation and nutrition education to create an unforgettable learning experience. 'The Magic of Nutrition' teaches children the importance of good nutrition and staying active using magic and illusion to create an educational and unforgettable learning experience. It is the perfect way to incorporate entertainment, audience participation and nutrition education to create an unforgettable learning experience. Five main messages, consistent with the current nutrition education objectives, are featured using of an engaging combination of illusion, comedy, live animals and audience participation. They are:
- The importance of eating breakfast.
- Increasing intake of fruits of vegetables.
- Healthy snacking.
- Decreasing soft drink consumption.
- Increasing activity.
