Healthy Kids Day at Y

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff


The free event included a health fair, games, a 5K family fun run, a basketball shoot-out, vendors, snacks, local mascots, activities, demonstrations and a family concert.

Healthy Kids Day is more important than ever this year. The amount of time American children and teens spend watching TV, playing video games and surfing the Internet has increased dramatically to nearly eight hours a day.

Experts say that school-age kids need at least one hour of physical activity every day to be healthy — an amount which nearly two-thirds of the nation’s youth are not getting.
