To promote the consumption of fruit and vegetables to children, Sesame Street recently partnered with Avocados From Mexico to create a series of videos entitled “AvoWellness: A is for Avocado.” In one video, chef Pati Jinich is joined by Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Rosita to explain the benefits of eating avocados. The group explains that avocados are filling, good for you—as they contain good unsaturated fats, are naturally cholesterol and sodium free, and contain 20 vitamins and nutrients—and lastly, are delicious. President of Avocados From Mexico Alvaro Luque stated that “AFM is proud to be working with Sesame Street to educate families about the benefits of nutrient-enriched fruits and vegetables and their important role in a well-balanced diet.” In another video, Jinich insists that avocados are delicious, to which Elmo responds, “yeah, Elmo loves them.” When we’re not keeping our fingers cross for avocado to be made into an emoji, we’re eating newly released avocado ice cream from Cado. Suffice it to say that we’re with you, Elmo.
