Healthy Play & Nutrition
Vector Entertainment and the National Childhood Obesity Foundation want to encourage all you kids out there to make good choices when it comes to playing actively and eating smartly.
Maybe you haven’t heard of Vector Entertainment, but you may know about its multiplayer online game and community, which is called Vector City Racers. This cool interactive game is for kids that are between six and 12 years old.
Well, it just so happens that the time between the ages of six and 12 is a really, really important time for the health, development and growth of your body and mind.
That’s why Vector and the National Childhood Obesity Foundation have decided to get together to bring important information, as well as cool contests and prizes, to kids who play Vector City Racers.
Did You Know? In the last 30 years the childhood obesity rate has more than tripled for kids who are between six and 11 years old?
It’s true, and it’s a very scary fact. That’s why it’s important for all you kids out there to understand how important it is to be active and to make good and healthy food choices.
Basically, we want you to eat smart and play smart. You need to understand what happens when you make bad decisions about eating (like eating too much junk food) and spending too much time playing on the computer or watching TV (you have to be active to be healthy so it’s important to spend just as much time playing outside).
