Since the 1970s, the percentage of overweight children has tripled in the United States. Today, one out of three children is overweight or obese in our community. Recent studies have found that students with healthier lifestyles actually perform better academically. The Kansas City Chiefs have created a unique way of educating young people about the positive benefits of leading healthier, happier lives to help reverse these trends.
Located inside Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs Sports Lab powered by Blue KC is a destination for students of all ages. It features hands-on and interactive computer activities promoting the importance of being active in your daily life, good nutrition, and healthy living. This one-of-a-kind educational center aligns with the Missouri Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) and Kansas Standards, Benchmarks and Indicators (SBIs) in Science, Physical Education and Health.
