Cordova Park and Longleaf Host Kid Power

November 5th and 6th Cordova Park and Longleaf Elementary hosted Kid Power, an innovative interactive 3_D presentation focusing on nutrition, healthy choices, physical activity and the importance of keeping "in balance".  Merry Moo, the Florida Dairy Council Mascot also joined in, emphasizing the importance of including three low fat servings of dairy each day.  The children learned about "High Fructose Corn Syrup" for the sheriff. "Portion Control" from the Lunch Lady, Digestion from the Nerd Meister, and self esteem and body image from Carlos the Fashion Designer.  The program finished with all of the students getting on their feet participating in Dance Dance Revolution-like activity.  A fun time was had by all.
