The summer is a time for relaxation and a break from school, but studies have shown that kids gain more weight and are less active in the summer while at home during the day. During a study on accelerated weight gain amongst children, the CDC found that fitness levels decrease, and body fat percentages increase during the summer. At the Healthy Kids Day event throughout the Greensboro, NC, area there will be opportunities to learn about staying fit and some of our programs that are offered to aid in a healthy lifestyle for kids of all ages, such as youth sports.

Check out ways to keep your kid(s) active during the upcoming summer season!
