YMCA Healthy Kids Day April 17, 2010 - Promote healthy habits in a fun way

Posted on Apr 16, 2010 by Maggie LaBarbera

Tomorrow is the YMCA Healthy Kids Day and there will be activities and events hosted throughout the United States.  Talk about a fun event that is all about reminding kids about the importance of daily exercise and healthy eating!

This year's theme is "Put Play in your Day!"

Check your local YMCA and see what is going on.  Take the kids and let them hear and learn about healthy living from others in the community which will be helpful in reinforce what you are saying!  It is this kind of synergy that we need to help kids turn around the childhood obesity trend in a very positive way.

We will be at the San Mateo Family YMCA on Grant Street and looking forward to meeting families and kids and promoting healthy eating.

Find a Healthy Kids Day event at the YMCA near you.  Just scroll to the bottom of the page and enter in your zip code.
