Vector City Racers: www.vectorcityracers.com

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).

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!
