Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Child Health Day

The purpose of Child Health Day is to help raise an awareness and a commitment to teaching children and parents the benefits of good health. This event is annually celebrated on the first Monday of October. The day was proclaimed in 1928 by Calvin Coolidge to increase awareness of health issues facing the children in the U.S. including health issues, healthy eating, fitness, child's development, immunizations, preventing injuries, and more.

Nutrition and physical activity play an important role in a child's health.

Staying healthy can be easy to remember when you think about five numbers. 5-4-3-2-1 Go! is a program that was developed by the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children. Each number represents the following:

5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day

4 servings of water a day

3 servings of low-fat dairy a day

2 hours or less of screen time a day (tips to reduce screen time)

1 hour or more of physical activity a day (latest recommendations for physical activity for youth)
