Screen-Free Week (formerly TV Turnoff Week):
TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE
MAY 5/5 To 5/11
I've decided to take up the challenge.
The aim of Screen Free/TV Turn-off week is to reduce the amount of television Americans watch and to focus on activities that watching television displaces like reading, creativity, productivity and healthy physical activity.
First posted on Michelle Obama's website Let's Move! as Dallas/Fort Worth Let's Move! DFW Let's Move! is a local community meetup group based on Let’s Move!, a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, Michelle Obama, dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams. DFW Let's Move! meetup group is a group to get kids more active by reducing time watching television and playing video games, to teach kids how to make healthy lifestyle choices, and a support group dedicated to solving the problem of childhood obesity and inactive children in the Dallas/Fort Worth local community. This group is not just for adults with over weight children. It's for anyone that has a desire to be more healthy and more active. "Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!"
