That’s Breakfast Froog!

August 19, 2009 at 7:03 am 2 comments

Ever since Ruth decided that she was too grown-up for Max and Ruby, and preferred Bo on the Go, I’ve added a new element to my morning.

(Yes, I’m one of those moms that lets the TV occupy my kids and serve as timekeeper while I get ready to go in the morning. If you want to judge me, do it on your own blog).

Every morning, just before Bo begins, MIGHTY MAMMA! saves breakfast.
Mighty Mamma- who in other segments is Mamma Yamma. That’s right- a giant talking sweet potato.

Check her out here (She’s at the bottom of the second page)

She runs a little restaurant with a sign out front proclaiming “Good Food Served Here”

And I love her.

I mean, sure, the segment is indeed sponsored by Kellogg’s, and they seem to eat a lot of toaster waffles. But so do we, frankly. And that was long before we started watching Kids CBC in the mornings.

I had trouble finding a Mighty Mamma segment to share- but where there’s a will, there’s a proud parent with a TV and a video camera!

As Ruth approaches school age, I don’t know what’ll happen when she gets to “health and nutrition” curriculum, if someone will teach her that calories are bad, and a measure of how much unpleasant exercise she’ll have to do to burn off her food. But for now, Mamma Yamma and I are singing from the same hymn book.

Playing is fun!
Food is good!
Food you eat gives you energy to play!
Lots of different kinds of food help you grow!

Seriously, is that so hard?

    Not hard at all.

    Came across this blog looking for Mamma Yamma info myself.

    LOVE this show too. And our daughter too graduated (thank G-D) from Max and Ruby (worst theme song ever!) and we stumbled upon Mamma Yamma when her hipster Canadian Indie Music loving Daddy was trying to steer her away from Treehouse.

    CBC Kids is awesome, much better programming I think.

    And the people that want to judge for TV… obviously aren’t parents, or know what needing some time to get things done is all about. If they have time to chastise you about it, what sort of parenting are they not doing in the time it takes to troll blogs?
