Healthy Kids Day

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022, 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. When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school learning activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than during the school year. With all that’s going on in the world right now, Healthy Kids Day is a reminder to families that we can help ensure all children have access to what they need to reach their full potential, even during out-of-school time.

The YMCA of Central Ohio is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. The Y is encouraging families to take a moment to help kids be kids and set them up for a summer of success. Families can participate in activities such as scavenger hunts, sports, games, healthy cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts, and more. These fun activities aim to motivate and teach families how to develop and maintain healthy routines at home.
