2nd Annual Healthy Kids Festival - Sept. 28
In celebration of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Clark County Cooperative Extension’s All 4 Kids Program and Paradise Park are proud to announce the second annual Healthy Kids Festival event on Saturday, September 28, 2013. The free festival, open to families, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Paradise Park located at 4775 McLeod Dr., Las Vegas, 89121.
Last year’s event presented childhood obesity awareness and prevention to nearly 1200 parents and children. Families are invited 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. Sport sign-up, live music and healthy food tastings are just some of the activities. Children will dance, play soccer, see Zumba and Karate demonstrations and learn how to grow their own foods and participate in other fun happenings.
First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Program is an initiative 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.
Reaching parents and families of young children and educating those who do not know how to help their child or where to seek assistance is critical to the success of healthy living. Parents and families are invited learn how to support and model positive behaviors for their young child.
