One in three kids in the U.S. is overweight or obese. If this trend continues, this generation of kids will be the first in our history to live shorter lives than their parents. The Healthy Kids Day campaign was created by the YMCA to ensure that every child is well nourished, physically active, and healthy.
Healthy Kids Day is a chance each year to celebrate fun and family while learning lifelong skills for health, through a series of FREE events. This is a day for kids and families to try new, exciting ways to be active and inspire imaginations. See what activities are going on at a Y near you at:
