In partnership with IKEA and other organizations, California State University, Bakersfield hosted local kids for a health carnival.

Kids could help themselves to educational sessions with law enforcement, a farmer's market and an inflatable obstacle course.

Officials at the event also gave some handy tips for parents looking to keep their kids active.

"Activities you can do at home like sack racing, bean bag toss and also just healthy food options," IKEA sustainability developer Shannon Harper said.

Kern County Human Services, WIC, Clinica Sierra Vista, North of the River and the Kern County Superintendent of Schools Office also participated in the event.
