Who is Coqui the Chef?
"Promoting healthy eating and nutritional awareness for all ages," with the use of cooking demos and nutritional workshops, Coqui the Chef™ encourages the value of daily nutrition and well-balanced meals by introducing healthy choices and providing useable information on various types of food from all over the world. Childhood diabetes and obesity are increasing like never before. Children consume more processed and fast foods, which put their health at a disadvantage from an early age. Alarmingly, even babies are being diagnosed as clinically obese, and are predisposed to develop Type II diabetes as early as adolescence. What our children eat can continually help them become and stay at their healthiest state. Coqui the Chef’s™ passionate mission is to reduce obesity and diabetes in children through education that is fun and motivates the kids to stay with better choices that my team provides them, and their parents.

Coqui the Chef partners with Healthy Neighborhoods City Harvest Program and Citizens Committee for New York City who share the mission to improve resources on low-income communities where healthy food is not readily accessible and where residents often suffer from high rates of diet-related diseases like diabetes and obesity.
