USDA Promotes Terrifying Body Exhibit to Fight Childhood Obesity

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is promoting a giant full-body exhibit for kids to walk through to promote healthy eating habits.

While encouraging schools to apply for nearly $6 million in grants to help them comply with the First Lady Michelle Obama-promoted Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act new lunch standards, the USDA highlighted efforts by the Kansas State Department of Education.

“Body Venture, a traveling health education exhibit sponsored by Kansas State Department of Education travels to schools to teach students about nutrition and physical activity,” the USDA said in a blog post Friday.

Body Venture is a 45-foot by 50-foot exhibit that starts with kids walking through a giant person’s open mouth, travel through a stomach and small intestines, and ending up in the “brain dome,” an ogre-like creature with a huge nose.
