LazyTown: Balancing childrens health

October 29th, 2007 by Birthe Nobel · 7 Comments

Magnus Scheving at Play the Game

Magnus Scheving is the founder of the tv-show LazyTown, which is a worldwide success. It motivates kids to eat healthier and move more. But is it okay to use a tv-show to get the message through? And can children get too conscious about health-issues? Magnus Scheving shares his thoughts on children, their rolemodels and why laziness is relative:

1. Having a choice

(Duration: 0.54 sec.)

”We never mention the word healthy or health. Never. That is why it is called LazyTown.”

2. Rolemodels for kids

(Duration: 1.02 sec.)

”If you look at Pippi Langstrømpe - is she really a rolemodel for kids? Some would say that, but I don’t think so, I think she is a rolemodel for women.”

3. A glass of water

(Duration: 1.26 sec.)

”John Lennon and Yoko Ono where in bed for a week. They where not lazy, because they where motivating the world.”

4. What scares Magnus Scheving?

(Duration: 0.33 sec.)

“…I think you can at least motivate people to either have an opinion with you or against you.”

5. TV as a motivator (High volume)

(Duration: 1.27 sec.)

”TV-programs like Tarzan and Bruce Lee motivated me to move.”

6. How to be in great shape

(Duration: 0.32 sec.)

”I move a lot, so if I can not eat hamburgers, who can?”
Sportacus in real life: Magnus Scheving

”Try to be in the middle. Don’t do too much, don’t do too little.”

    Skype has established its website-centered client beta to
    the entire world, following launching it extensively inside the United states and U.K.

    longer list of different languages to help strengthen that international
