WILLIAMSBRIDGE -

Rapper Styles P is doing his part to help kids stay healthy as part of National Childhood Obesity Month.

Styles P, whose real name is David Styles, was the keynote speaker for this year's "Out of the Pool Back to School" rally at the Evander Childs football field, sharing his own struggles with unhealthy eating as a child.

City Councilman Andy King teamed up with the Bronx Youth Empowerment Program to host the annual event. This year's theme was focused on preventing childhood obesity.

Styles P, who now owns a couple of juice bars in the Bronx, says he hopes children learn about what goes into their bodies and become more aware of the impact food has on them.
