Food is fuel and few know it better than three-time NBA champion Steph Curry and cooking expert Ayesha Curry, who swung by Sesame Street to discuss the most important meal of the day: breakfast! In a recent segment of the show released on March 25 on HBO Max, the couple joined Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Grover to give a lesson in healthy eating. "Eating a healthy breakfast every morning helps you learn and play," the mother of three said during the clip. After enjoying a balanced breakfast of fruit and pancakes, the group headed outside to shoot some hoops on the basketball court, demonstrating how the morning meal can help people of all ages play, learn, and grow.
"The letter of the day is C for Cooking!" Ayesha said in an Instagram post. "We had so much fun joining our friends on @SesameStreet for a day filled with cooking and basketball! Watch this brand-new episode, streaming now on @hbomaxfamily !!! Our babies are soooo excited!" Behind the scenes, Steph even snuck in some time to wander over to Oscar's place for a fun photo opp. "Keep your [trashcan] jokes to yourself! Face with tears of joy Had to check out my man Oscar's digs . . . fun day on @sesamestreet. Catch our visit in the newest ep, streaming now!"
The couple are parents to three children, including 8-year-old Riley, 5-year-old Ryan, and 2-year-old Canon. They are also the founders of Eat.Learn.Play., a nonprofit that works with children from all across the country, especially those in low-income communities, to promote the importance of nutrition, education, and physical activity.
