Museums in New Orleans and New York are using the arts to fight childhood obesity.  The project is geared toward 2 to 5 year olds and their families.  It will use art, music and story telling to teach kids about good nutrition.  Parents will receive handouts with recipes and tips about healthy eating.  If its successful, it could be used nationwide.  The Children's Museum of Manhattan is launching a pilot program at  a public housing facility in the Bronx known as the East Side House Settlement, then the Louisiana Children's Museum will follow.
