KidsCOOK Productions aims to reduce childhood obesity. Approximately nine million children over the age of six in the U.S. are considered obese. The rise in obesity is pervasive in both girls and boys, and across socioeconomic and ethnic groups in all 50 states. Furthermore, childhood obesity can often harm a child's self-esteem, socialization, and academic performance.

KidsCOOK Productions believes that digital media plays a critical role in educating kids in order to prevent childhood obesity. In a time when 11-14 year-olds spend an average of 12 hours per day accessing some sort of media (internet, television, cell phones, etc.) we have a unique opportunity to reach these budding digital natives where they are – online, on the go, at school and at home. Our goal is to capitalize on kids' increasing use of media by creating innovative digital content that entertains and promotes laughter and interactivity while simultaneously teaching nutrition and fitness.
