Heart disease and stroke: Explained by kids
What does the heart do? Why do we need to eat vegetables?
We asked kids. They answered. And they were adorable doing it.
Welcome to Kidz Explain, a new video series from the American Heart Association where kids tell you all you need to know about heart disease and stroke.
Our kids are breaking down the facts for all of us – not just other kids. We wanted to open a dialog about heart health, what it means to have good heart health, and understand heart disease and stroke concepts in simple language. If a kid can get it, we think you can too.
And we believe that knowledge is the power and motivation for you to take the small, simple steps necessary to prevent, treat and beat this big disease. We hope you enjoy the series.
From our kids, to your heart.
