New to Healthy Kids Day this year is the Y’s nationwide call for artwork, Child Hunger is No Fairytale, highlighting the importance nutrition plays in ensuring kids reach their full potential. Children attending Healthy Kids Day will be able to create their artwork and submit it via social media. The selected winners’ artwork will be shared in an online gallery and/or featured in the Y’s national anti-hunger campaign.
