Healthy Eating Campaign Event - Whole Foods Little Rock, Sept. 27

Posted on 10 Sep 2013

Let's face it. Getting kids to eat what they should can be … tough. Sometimes, they want what they want - and they're pretty emphatic about it!


Depending on the age and stage, "what they want" can be good stuff - like brussel sprouts - or a demand for a steady diet of cereal, chicken and mac-n-cheese. 

So what can you do to turn the tide? We're big believers that (along with the good parenting skills you're already practicing) a little creativity and food fun go a long way! To help out on that note, we have great news …


In partnership with Little Rock Whole Foods, we're supporting the PBS Whole Foods Healthy Eating Campaign with an exciting, kid-focused event from 3-5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27!  There, we'll share fun info about healthy eating, go on an in-store scavenger hunt to win prizes and have opportunities for everyone to meet Clifford the Big Red Dog. You'll also have the chance to try out a ton of fun activities from "Peg+Cat," our newest preschool math program that joins the PBS Kids line-up this October. It's going to be a blast!

Until then, though, there are tons of great ideas and activities you can check out at home. PBS.org/HealthyKids has lots of fun ideas, from games and recipes to tips and tricks, while pbs.org/parents shares great advice and more.

Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.


Volunteers Like You
You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.


Parents, PJs and Pies
Wear your PJs and join us for a fun-filled family event as we and our partners at Dropping Back in and Healthy Families of Faulkner and Conway Counties share education resources on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.! “Parents, PJs and Pies” will feature a BBQ lunch, giveaways, fun activities and special “Llama Llama Red Pajama” gift bags.


“Back Road Barns” - Viewer Photos
Coming to AETN on Thursday, Aug. 25, “Back Road Barns” travels through rural Arkansas on a visual road trip to classic barns that have long been a part of our culture. See a preview of what you have to look forward to by scrolling through viewer photo submissions for a special segment of the AETN original film.
