Date: March 1, 2023
Free and open to the public, this annual event features a day of fun-filled activities to celebrate kids being kids.
The Y is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday, April 29 10am-1pm. This free, annual event features a variety of family-friendly activities to encourage healthy kids, healthy families and a healthy start to the summer season.
“It is so important for kids to stay active over the summer, both physically and mentally,” said Tim Bartlett, Central Connecticut Coast YMCA Sr. Vice President & COO. “At the Y, we believe in providing resources to families to ensure that their children have access to what they need to reach their full potential, no matter the time of year. Healthy Kids Day is a fun, free community-wide event that encourages families to take advantage of all the great summer resources that the Y has to offer.”
Sponsored by Eggland’s Best, Healthy Kids Day’s mission is to turn fun and play into lifelong memories.
“At Eggland’s Best, we strive to help families fulfill their health and wellness goals by supplying them with the only egg that provides superior taste, nutrition, versatility and freshness compared to ordinary eggs,” said Kurt Misialek, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “We’re thrilled to be an Official Sponsor of Healthy Kids Day to make nutrition fun and encourage families to choose better-for-you foods.”
YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day takes place 10am – 1pm at most of the CCCYs and features fun, active play with educational activities. At each event, we will be collecting healthy food items appropriate for a child’s lunch box. Visit our branch web sites for specific activities and event locations.
