MSUM students are teaching children to tackle obesity at a young age. The Public Relations Student Society of America is showing children at the Boys and Girls Club how to stay healthy. The children are learning about food groups and making fruit kabobs. They're even learning fun ways of staying fit.

Kailey Nourse – MSUM Student: "I was actually a little shocked they were all dancing. I wasn't expecting it. I figured there were a couple who would be like, ‘no, I don't want to do this.’ But as soon as we came in they seemed really excited."

One in three children is considered obese.
