NerdelTM Healthy Food & Fitness Program for Kids

Celebrity has partnered with The NerdelTM Company to help educate kids about healthy nutrition and physical activity in a fun way. This company was developed by a team of doctors, nutritionists, chefs, and fitness experts to address the issues of childhood obesity, hunger, fitness, and health. Nerdel, the alien from the planet Zendel, is a life-size character that entertains little ones with live performances, musical activities, book readings and other fun things in a mission to empower children with the knowledge to make better nutritional choices and to take charge of their own physical well being. ShipmatesSM (ages 3-5) and CadetsSM (ages 6-8) will learn about the art of puppeteering, performance, and production. Cute, funny and entertaining? Yes, but "Fighting Junk and Bad Nutrition Is His Mission!TM"
