On Saturday, April 26th, the Washington County Family YMCA is celebrating YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day® with a free community event that encourages kids in Washington County to get moving and learning, and families living healthier. Healthy Kids Day, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, takes place at 1,900 Ys and kick-starts healthier behaviors now and throughout the summer, a critical out-of-school time for children’s health.

Many U.S. children do not get the daily recommended hours of physical activity and reading, and daily amounts of healthy foods. According to the latest findings of the YMCA’s Family Health Snapshot – a survey of parents that gauges their children’s activity levels during the school year – only 19 percent of children get 60 minutes of physical activity, only 17 percent read books for fun, and only 12 percent eat at least eight fruits and vegetables daily.

“At the Washington County Family YMCA, we know parents struggle to keep their kids physically and intellectually active every day. We want to help ensure fewer kids are at risk of childhood obesity and more kids excel in school,” said Shelby-lain Brown, Programs Coordinator at the Washington County Family YMCA. “YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day will get kids moving and learning while also helping families get a jump on creating a healthier summer, and ultimately a healthier future.”

Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. On April 26, YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day will help parents begin thinking early about what their kids need to grow and achieve all summer long.

The Washington County Family YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day will take place at the YMCA in Salem, IN from 11am-3pm and features fun, active play and educational activities; such as building a healthy plate with the St. Vincent Salem Hospital, learning safety tips from local fire and police departments as well as touring emergency vehicles and equipment.

YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day is supported by local partners Fox Purlee with Cetera Advisor Networks, Mid Southern Savings Bank, and Regions Bank. The event is also supported by national media partners Sprout and Lazy Town, who are committed to encouraging kids to lead a healthy lifestyle.
