5th annual Healthy Kids Festival Saturday

The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension is sponsoring the 5th annual Healthy Kids Festival Saturday.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Whitney Recreation Center, located at 5712 Missouri Ave. The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s All 4 Kids Program and Clark County Parks and Recreation Department are sponsoring the event to celebrate Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.

Local community partners will come together to promote nutrition, physical activity, growing fruits and vegetables, healthy food tasting, music and dance instruction, BMI and health assessments, city/county recreation, sports and outdoor venues.

Each agency will provide interactive, hands-on experiences for children who visit their activity stations where a bingo-like game card is stamped. Donated prizes are used to promote completion of game cards.
