"Two-thirds of our adults and 17 percent of our children are either overweight or obese. It is time for all of us to work together to ensure a healthier future for our most precious resource, our children."

In addition to Saatchi & Saatchi produced PSAs, the Ad Council and USDA partnered with Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, on a series of PSAs featuring the lovable characters and memorable songs from Disney's original classic The Jungle Book. An extension of the USDA's Nutrition Education campaign, these new spots, available for television, radio, outdoor and internet media, highlight the importance of balancing good nutrition and physical activity, by emphasizing the "Bare Necessities" of healthy living and sending a message to parents and children that leading a healthy lifestyle can help them be the best at everything they love to do.
