Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Preschool Fitness Day.

Daycare centers throughout the US will celebrate this day that promotes healthy lifestyle habits of physical education and healthy eating in preschool children.

This day is observed annually on the last Friday in January.

With the growing concern over childhood obesity, diabetes and an early predisposition to heart disease, it is imperative that healthy habits of regular exercise and sound eating are taught to our youngest population.  Two-thirds of adults and nearly one in three children are overweight or obese.  This has a direct impact on the work force, health care costs and overall quality and length of life.

National Preschool Fitness Day is a perfect time for the community, child care centers, preschools, businesses and parents to come together to encourage daily physical activity for all children during the preschool years.  Numerous studies point out that preventing disease and implanting healthy habits works best when aimed at children age 5 and younger.
