Following a year of social distancing, virtual school, mask wearing and endless hours of screen time, the YMCA of Coastal Georgia is hosting their annual Healthy Kids Day®, encouraging families to take a moment to help kids be kids. The Y aims to provide a carefree day for children, celebrating what makes a kid, a healthy kid.
Healthy Kids Day is the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families. The Y hopes to use the day to get more kids moving and learning, creating healthy habits they can continue while they’re away from the classroom. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. Following a year filled with numerous changes and uncertainty, Healthy Kids Day is a reminder to families that we can help ensure all children have access to the key ingredients to reach their full potential, even during out-of-school time.
