Healthy Kids

February 14, 2013

In this edition of Northwest Now, concerns about the general health of today's children is discussed. Experts on the discussion panel include the state's nutritional programs supervisor, a pediatrician and a specialist who looks at the social issues surrounding children's health. We'll also travel to a local playground to speak with concerned parents and look at a local pediatric exercise and nutritional program working to re-shape young bodies and create healthy life-long habits when it comes to diet and exercise.

The conversation continues...

A Producer's Note on "The Conversation Continues" segments:

Northwest Now is an important part of KBTC's commitment to engage viewers by convening community stakeholders for meaningful conversations. But those conversations often continue after the televised portion of the show runs out of time. These web-only extras are offered so viewers can see the rest of the discussion if it happens to continue. Bear in mind, these segments aren't "made for television" in that the studio crew is sometimes getting extra shots or busy striking the set. So while it may not always be pretty, we hope you'll find it interesting.
