Through the sponsorship of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City, KCPT has been tackling the growing problem of childhood obesity and sedentary lifestyles with educators, health experts, fitness gurus and policy makers. With a new school year comes a new season of our series Generation XL, as we look at how schools across the metro are addressing the issues of physical activity among their students. From before- and after-school activities, to recess, to movement in the classroom, some of the metro’s schools are coming up with creative ways to squeeze in that much-needed physical activity boost.
