Memorial Hospital helps get kids active

South Bend, Ind. A team at Memorial Hospital is working to find different ways to fight childhood obesity, other than good old fashioned exercise.

Today, the hospital's Childhood Obesity Task Force wrapped up one of their trials to address the problem.

The program is officially called Wham, short for wellness, hydration and movement.

The idea is get kids active with fun dance routines, make sure they drink plenty of water and eat a healthy lunch.

After receiving a popular response, the task force says it will probably put together a permanent schedule next summer.
