Public-service videos — Let’s Play! Let’s Grow Strong!

  • These fun videos are aimed at inspiring children aged 3 to 8 to run and play, and to eat well. Some may spark your children to ask for a breakfast or lunch that’s healthy. Feel free to watch, share, download, and play them at home, your daycare, clinic, school, website, television station or wherever children might see them. These videos were sponsored by Tri-County Health Department and The Children’s Hospital, both in Colorado, with funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
