Childhood obesity is the one of the greatest challenges facing America’s Children and Families today.
% of all children and adolescents are overweight or obese.
This problem is even more pronounced in low-income and minority communities.
Inadequate access to nutritional literacy and healthy foods in underserved communities perpetuates health disparities.
Furthermore, a majority of US schools and after-school programs do not have the resources or preparation time necessary to implement a health and nutrition curriculum.

“With obesity rates in children on a steep incline, getting the message of healthy living out to children at an impressionable age has become increasingly important. IFE & KickinNutrition.TV have the presence and appeal to greatly impact the dieting and fitness habits of today’s youth. Not only are these videos educational, but also engaging. Students are able to laugh along with relatable characters and humorous scenarios teaching them in a way a generic health video or class never could…the curriculum is one that will serve its purpose far beyond the classroom impacting families and communities alike.”
– Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, Dean, Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy, Tufts University
“KickinNutrition is one of the most fantastic shows I’ve ever seen cause it tells you how you should eat or why you should be eating this or how many servings are in each bag of junk food.”
– Senai, 5th Grade Student, Harlem Village Academy
“KickinNutrition.TV is just what our kids need to discover healthy eating on their own. No preaching! No boring lessons! Instead, the super cool videos allow tweens to observe healthy eating through videos and to hone their knowledge and skills through fun games that students control! I am thrilled to be able to provide this outstanding new resource to our students and teachers.”
