Working with our sister company, Helpsgood, we concepted and produced an animated video series for Healthy Lifestyle Choices and their new Behavioral-Health Curriculum for children. The videos highlight positive ways for kids to set and accomplish goals, eating healthy, decision making and positive expression. The webisodes also introduce the new faces of Healthy Lifestyle Choices: The Case Crusaders. The Crusaders are actually the school trophies who come to life and help students solve problems. Check out the videos and the activities.
