Ed Said eat healthful

bb886-edsaid3Mississippi Public Broadcasting recently introduced its newest star.

Ed Said is a 9-year-old boy with purple hair, an orange hoodie and Converse kicks who raps about fruits and veggies to encourage healthful eating habits among children.

He was created by a Sesame Street puppeteer in part because Mississippi has the highest childhood and adult obesity rates in the nation.
