In 2012, the National Institute of Health launched the “We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition)” initiative to help children stay at a healthy weight by encouraging healthy eating, increased physical activity, and reduced time in front of a television or computer screen. In support of this initiative, BAPS Charities hosted Children’s Health and Safety Day across North America and spread the message of healthy living to children and their families to help curb obesity and promote healthy eating habits from the early years of childhood. BAPS Charities’ volunteers worked in tandem with local pediatricians, nutritionists, dentists, and nurses to teach children about hygiene, healthy living, and physical activity.

Playing doctor and learning how to take care of my teddy bear was awesome.
This was a very educational event. Even though it is for children I feel I have learned a lot about making sure my child leads a healthy and active lifestyle.
