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).

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
