All 4 Kids LogoMark Your Calendar! Cooperative Extension’s All 4 Kids© Program and Winchester Park and Cultural Center are proud to announce the Healthy Kids Festival event on Saturday, September 29, 2012. The free festival, open to families, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Winchester located at 3130 McLeod Dr., Las Vegas, 89121.

The goal of the Festival is to raise awareness and target prevention of childhood obesity in the community.  September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, and we are inviting families to come out and learn how to be healthy and active. A day full of fun and entertainment is anticipated for everyone while gaining valuable resources and information available to community residents.

Watch for more information in the upcoming weeks!

Childhood obesity is a problem that begins with the child, the families and the school; then extends to the community, local and national government. Educating children at a young age will provide them with tools to make healthier choices and engage in active lifestyles during adolescence and later years.
