Healthy Families

The YMCA knows that keeping a family healthy can be a challenge. We're here to offer help and resources both inside our YMCAs and out. 

Parents say that getting their kids to eat more fruits and vegetables is a big challenge. So the YMCA worked with other YMCAs around the country and we offer 5210 Y Healthy Hero. This program runs in YMCA After School programs and encourages kids to try new fruits and vegetables, reduce screen time and take steps to eliminate sugar drinks.

If you kids are school age or day camp age, packing a nutritious lunch that your child will eat may seem like an oxymoron. Here are some ideas to try that are great for adults too!

The YMCA also offers nutrition counseling. We bring in licensed nutritionists who can work with you and your family to develop better eating habits and healthy recipes.

The YMCA is your healthy resource for you and your family.
