The West Suburban YMCA today announced it will hold Healthy Kids Day, a free community event, on Saturday May 6 from 2-4 pm. Healthy Kids Day will be held at the Church St Y at 276 Church St, Newton, MA. This annual event is part of the Y’s nationwide initiative to improve the health and well-being of children and families. The Y aims to inspire kids to stay active, engaged, and learn while away from school, establishing healthy habits that can last a lifetime.

Healthy Kids Day 2023 will offer a variety of fun and educational activities designed to keep children moving, exploring, and developing essential skills. The event will feature sports, arts and crafts, projects, kids’ yoga, obstacle courses, nutrition workshops, and much more. Families attending the event will have the opportunity to connect with local community organizations and resources that support children’s out-of-school learning and growth. Research indicates that children can face numerous obstacles during out-of-school time that hinder their academic, social, and physical development. Healthy Kids Day serves as a reminder that all children deserve the tools and opportunities to achieve their full potential, even when school is not in session.

Healthy Kids Day 2023 at the Church Street Y is a free event open to the public, and all families in the Newton area are encouraged to attend. For more information about the Health Kids Day schedule, click here. (Healthy Kids Day 2023 | West Suburban YMCA (
