BATON ROUGE - Mayor Kip Holden's healthy eating initiative released a locally-created music video Tuesday intended to help get kids to eat healthy.

The Mayor's Youth Advisory Council helped create the video along with John Gray, a musician and instructor at the Dunham School. It cost $15,000 to make and was paid for by a grant from State Farm.

The song focuses on the 5-2-10+10 program promoted by Healthy BR to combat childhood and youth obesity. The program calls for a daily regimen of five servings of fruits and vegetables, two hours or less in front of a TV or computer, at least one hour of physical exercise, 0 sugary drinks and 10 hours of sleep.
