"With summer less than two months away, Healthy Kids Day gives parents ideas on how to keep their kids healthy and active during the summer months," says Diane Sanderson, Simi Y's membership director. "Studies show that kids gain weight during summer because many don't take part in as many outdoor activities as they do during the school year."
The Simi Y is one of 1,900 YMCA hosting Healthy Kids Day in spring. With nearly one in three U.S. children overweight or obese, the national YMCA instituted Healthy Kids Day to encourage kids and parents to commit to keeping their bodies and minds active during the summer.
The Simi Y is at 3200 Cochran Street in Simi Valley. For more information about Healthy Kids Day, call the Y at 805-583-5338.
