Discovery Education and The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF) announced today an unprecedented, innovative alliance to help parents, educators, and children address the problem of childhood obesity.
Today HWCF is launching web-based outreach campaigns with Discovery Education to encourage and promote physical activity and healthy eating, especially among children. The online campaigns address rising levels of childhood obesity. About one-third of American kids are currently overweight. The outreach program is uniquely designed to support children whether at home with their families or at school with their teachers. A simple interface empowers users to easily transition between the websites creating a virtually seamless user experience educating parents and children, no matter where they are, about healthy food choices, eating tips, and physical activities. The comprehensive student engagement program presented by HWCF and Discovery Education at www.energybalance101.com leverages Discovery Education’s communications expertise and demonstrated ability to provide educators with useful tools to help their students. What better tool to release stress before testing begins and to help fill those long days after end of year testing.
