Do you have a child in your life?
Today is National Child Health Day. In 1928 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the first National Child Health Day. The day moved to the first Monday in October in 1960.
In the 1860’s hospitals specializing in the care of sick children were developed. Today, many hospitals for children exist including St. Jude’s, Shriners and Boston Children’s Hospital.
On this day: exercise with a child to promote physical fitness, review healthy food choices to add to your diet or donate to the Miracle Network Dance Marathon held each year to promote children’s health (https://dancemarathon.childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org).
