The new year is a time for resolutions and for many of us that includes a renewed commitment to exercise and healthy eating. Sid the Science Kid premieres “Get Up and Move!” this January, a special episode designed to motivate kids to run and play outside and make healthy food choices.

“Get Up and Move!”

A Special Episode on Exercise and Healthy Eating
Premieres Friday, January 6, 10am
(repeats Monday, January 16 & Thursday, February 9, 10am)

Sid is super excited, because teacher Susie announced that today is full of surprises-healthy surprises! First the class walks to a local park where they get to run around and play outside in the fresh air! Susie teaches the kids how to do yoga, and when it’s snack time, the kids get another special surprise-they get to pick fresh vegetables from a community garden! Yum! Next, Susie teaches the kids her favorite childhood game-Red Light, Green Light! It’s a great way to move your body, and it’s fun! Back home, Sid tells his Mom about his amazing day, and Mom is inspired to plant a garden in the backyard. Sid then comes up with a new family tradition-taking a walk every day together! It’s easy to do and it’s a fun, healthy way to move your body!
