About Keeping Kids Fit
Vegas PBS, working with many local and national partners, has a new, long-term commitment addressing childhood obesity. The Vegas PBS Keeping Kids Fit(KKF) project is modeled after the successful Vegas PBS Ready to Learn community outreach program. KKF will expand current services by targeting families with children ages 2-12 from primarily low-income, African-American and Hispanic/Latino backgrounds promoting a lifetime made of healthy habits.
Vegas PBS would like to acknowledge the role of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for their generous support of the Vegas PBS Keeping Kids Fit project.
The project has assembled and is guided by a community advisory council of childhood nutrition experts, educators, health professionals, and outreach partners in keeping the Vegas PBS Keeping Kids Fit content valuable to the community.
One exciting element of the Vegas PBS Keeping Kids Fit project will be the use of multiple forms of technology ranging from television broadcasts to podcasts and online opportunities. Groups of children record and reflect upon striving for a healthy lifestyle by using video cameras to document their experiences for broadcast and web-based offerings.
