Music & Food Affect Your Mood


Bill not only creates imaginative food art, he's also a renowned jazz guitarist.
Whether he's improvising a breakfast or a jazz solo, it puts him in a good mood.


So when we do Funny Food workshops, Bill uses food and music to make it fun for children and families to learn about nutrition.
At a workshop for Jazz at Lincoln Center, Bill said, "Music and food have a similar affect on us. They are both nourishing-make us happy, give us energy, are soothing, help us focus, improve our memory, and have the power to heal."


Kids and parents are mesmerized and inspired by Bill's food art and enjoy making their own healthy Funny Food. Music puts them in the groove and they leave feeling peachy. Here's one of Bill's songs:


Funny Food

I make Funny Food for breakfast
'cause it's fun to start the day
Using my imagination
In a crazy, whacky way

It's fun to be creative
Anything I make's ok
Doesn't matter what it looks like
Gonna eat it anyway

I'm looking at my Funny Food
And what is that I see?
A silly, healthy, funny face
Looking back at me.

When I play with Funny Food
It puts me in a happy mood
And when I eat my Funny Food
It makes my body feel so good.
