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).

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3
