Last Saturday, April 28th,the Fowler YMCA here in Peachtree Corners joined with hundreds of YMCAs across the country in hosting their annual “Healthy Kids Day”. One hundred fifty families filled the Atrium of the Y learning tips for healthy living from a variety of different resources.
Staff members from Pediatric Associates of North Atlanta were happy to participate in this community event. We measured height and weight, provided vision screening, calculated BMI (Body Mass Index), and provided information to parents about the importance of tracking BMI. But, of course, the favorite activity at our booth was the face painting!
There were arts and crafts, games, inflatables to play on and demonstrations from the karate and gymnastics classes at the Y. Climbing in the fire engine was very exciting and everyone enjoyed the puppet show. If you missed the event this year, be looking out for it next year.
