Wednesday May 7th  on The Morning News:

We’ve got a busy show planned for Wednesday on The Morning News. Brett Ruskin will be filling in on the news desk with Crystal Garrett while  Paul Brothers is on assignment – moonlighting as a McDonald’s crew-member at the Lacewood Drive location in Halifax. He’ll be rolling up his sleeves and pitching in to help out with the annual McHappy Day activities. Paul will get a taste of just about everything, from working the grill, to drive-thru orders to the front cash! He’ll be live throughout the morning from the Lacewood Drive McDonald’s location starting at 6am so if you’re in the neighbourhood, drop by and say hi and buy a coffee for a good cause.

It’s never too early or too late to get your kids cooking in the kitchen. As you’ve seen in our Uncle Ben’s Cooking with Kids segments in previous weeks, inviting your kids into the kitchen allows for great bonding time for parents and teaches kids skills that will last a lifetime. At 6:45 Crystal will talk dietitian Tara Jones from the IWK Health Centre. She’ll provide more tips on how to get kids excited about eating and cooking healthy meals.
