Little Spork is the new face of Healthy Eating in Schools
Many kids are spending less time exercising and more time in front of the TV, computer, or video-game console. And today's busy families have fewer free moments to prepare nutritious, home-cooked meals. From fast food to electronics, quick and easy is the reality for many people in the new millennium.
The percentage of overweight children in the United States is growing at an alarming rate, with 1 out of 3 kids now considered overweight or obese.
Little Spork and his band of utensil friends aims to educate and inspire kids to get proactive in their health. Everyone remembers their childhood school days in the cafeteria with nothing to eat but cold tator tots, maybe a cardboard-like piece of pizza and if they were lucky some limp green beans. Not very appetizing, eh?
