On today's debut episode of Feeding Our Future, Bill Telepan asked his fellow chefs, public school parents, and school volunteers  Jonathan Waxman and Zak Pelaccio to join him to talk about cafeteria food, feeding their own kids, and what it will take to change the way America eats. 

Are kids harder to please than Sam Sifton? Well, as you'll hear in this clip, Zak Pelaccio's son Hudson is willing to eat a frog  or a turtle, but not out-of-season broccoli.

Still, there is hope for parents of picky eaters.  Even a kid addicted to Baconator sandwiches can be converted by a well-placed fruit, as Bill explains here.

If you think you don't have time to cook at home, you're not going to get any sympathy from these three busy restaurateurs, who argue that family meals are well worth the effort.

In a world of cheap, easy, fast food, how can cooking become important again in the average American family?  Jonathan has a idea we know Martha would love: Make every day a holiday.  (OK, maybe just a couple days a week!)

The show will replay tonight at 7 pm ET, Saturday at 4 pm ET, and Sunday at 10 am ET, so if you missed it, be sure to get caught up before next week's interview with White House chef and Senior Policy Advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives, Sam Kass!
