Fit Family Secret Formula

The objective of the Fit Family campaign is to educate the public about a healthier family lifestyle.  In particular, the messaging was to encourage family members to eat at least 5 fruits and veggies per day, spend less then 2 hours in front of a screen – television, gaming, or computer monitor-, have at least one hour of physical activity, and drink almost no sugary beverages.  That is quite a complex message.

We developed the idea of “5-2-1-Almost None” in a TV campaign featuring the antics of Professor Wisely and his assistant, Zedo. Working closely with the interactive developers, the muppets were also featured on the FitFamilyNC webpage where parents and kids alike could learn how to become a Fit Family.

There’s something fun and very childlike working around muppets and it goes down as one of my favorite shoots to date.
