Quotes

...kids to eat fruits and veggies, even delicious ones like blueberries, avocados or our Santa Sweets tomatoes," Paone added in the press release. "Kids are conditioned to think that fruits and veggies are healthy, and to them healthy often means bland or bad tasting. The Sesame characters will provide an opportunity for suppliers like us to reach kids and open their eyes to the reality that fruits and veggies can be just as tasty as other snacks."
"It feels right for CBeebies and we were so excited to bring Cookie Monster, Elmo and the Furchester family over to Salford to film. I can't wait to see the reaction of our young viewers when they hit the screens."
"They have done some amazing work in terms of audience engagement; in terms of mobile design; in terms of building apps and they'll be talking about how to reach an audience, about important issues that we face. Children's programing tackles these issues just like news outlets do" Knoblich said
“Our main vision is to help young children grow smarter, stronger, and kinder,” he said. "We will be producing content on a variety of platforms to achieve measurable educational gains with a goal to empower young children with the knowledge and skills to meet their full potential and become productive leaders and citizens."
