YMCA Of Central Kentucky’s Healthy Kids Day® Fun Fest Aims to Help Kids Exercise Minds and Bodies

ymca 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (4/20/13) – On Sunday, April 21, the YMCA of Central Kentucky is celebrating YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day® with a free community event that encourages kids in central Kentucky 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.
 
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 21, the Y’s Healthy Kids Day Fun Fest will help parents begin thinking early about what their kids need to grow and achieve all summer long.
 
The Healthy Kids Day Fun Fest will take place at the University of Kentucky’s Nutter Field House from 2-5 p.m. and will feature activities such as relay races, inflatables, hula hoops, soccer, obstacle courses and more.
 
YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day is supported by national media partners Sprout and Lazy Town, who are committed to encouraging kids to lead a healthy lifestyle.
