Chad Westover from Molina Healthcare of Utah and Dr. Cleo (Molina Healthcare's mascot) explained to us how they are trying to help raise awareness to try and fight obesity.
Recent reports show there is a substantial climb in obesity rates and by 2030 Utah's rate may be near 50%.
To help raise awareness and change the trend, Molina Healthcare is developing creative and fun programs to teach youth about healthy eating and exercise.
One of these is the introduction of the Smoothie Bike, a fixed bike where children can actually blend a fruit and veggie smoothie by pedaling.
Molina and Dr. Cleo will be visiting Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salt Lake and several schools in the near future.
