The New Year brings with it a new PBS Kids initiative aimed at tackling the growing problem of childhood obesity in the US.

PBS Kids is convening the Public Media Council on Children’s Health, which will bring together public television and web producers, PBS member stations, community and education partners, and experts in children’s media, development, health and nutrition. The council will meet shortly to discuss how public broadcaster should attack health-related issues in their programming.

Expect to see more concrete recommendations issued by the fledgling council in the next month.
