Go Haile!

Tucson resident Haile Thomas, who competed for Team Rachael in “Rachael vs. Guy: Kids’ Cook-Off,” will appear on the Rachael Ray show on October 11. Haile, who is on the Youth Advisory Board for the Clinton Foundation’s Alliance for a Healthier Generation will cook with Chelsea Clinton, who appears with Rachael for the first time.

Haile shows Chelsea and Rachael how to make one of her signature recipes, a gluten-free Blueberry Peach Quinoa Crumble. They also chat about Haile’s appearance on Rachael vs. Guy and her work with the Clinton Foundation.

Chelsea praised her work with the board, saying: “Haile is one of our best Youth Advisory Board members, and she is so humble, but she has done so much, not only to help her own family be healthier, but to help educate other kids about how kids can really help their lives be healthier, but also influence the choices that their families make.”

Haile also talks about how her father’s Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis inspired her to encourage healthier eating in her family, and her dad is now diabetes-free.
