You know him as Nevel Papperman on Nickelodeon’s hit show, iCarly, but he is not just an actor and not just a teen…. He is creating Healthy & Delicious Back to School Recipes with icarly Star Reed Alexander
Off-camera, the 17-year old self-trained chef is taking an active role in educating our younger generations about making healthy lifestyle choices via his food website, www.KewlBites.com and his work with The Alliance for a Healthier Generation (founded by the William J. Clinton Foundation & American Heart Association).
While parents can talk about eating healthy until they’re blue in the face, kids stop and listen when Reed speaks about the importance of good nutrition. He frequently visits schools and in February, he launched 4fresh and healthy school lunch recipes with The Alliance that are available at no cost to every school in the US.
After struggling with his weight as a busy teen star, Reed’s passion for creating a healthy lifestyle led him to begin experimenting in the kitchen, writing his own recipes and compiling them into his food and fitness focused website, KewlBites. Balancing auditions, media appearances and school, Reed’s schedule is comparable to that of a busy parent; hence his recipes are catered to those with little time in the kitchen.
