"At Kids Foot Locker, we strongly believe that getting kids to be active early on will lead to an overall healthier lifestyle," said Jed Berger, Vice President, Brand Marketing for Kids Foot Locker. "With the American Heart Association, we are able to give our customers practical and fun tips on how to get kids and the whole family moving together."
"Childhood obesity is a growing health concern in the U.S. with nearly one in three children between ages 2 and 19 being obese. Encouraging an active lifestyle at an early age will help prevent health problems later in life and keep kids healthy as they develop," said Dr. Robert Eckel, former AHA President and Professor of Medicine at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. "Moreover, growing up being physically active may set a heart-healthy pattern for the adult years to follow," said Eckel.
Kids Foot Locker will also distribute information to parents promoting children's wellness and good health to its VIP loyalty club members and Facebook fans as part of its fit and health initiative.
