Junior League of Savannah KidsFest 2015 Free Family Events Savannah Junior League of Savannah to Host Fit Kids Fest free interactive health and fitness event for area kids and their parents Saturday, April 18, 2015, 3-5 PM at Optimist Field in Daffin Park.

Since the mid 1980’s obesity has increased so that not only is it considered an epidemic, but it has become one of the most serious public health problems facing the United States. One in three children in Chatham County is considered obese. Studies show that overweight kids are more likely to become overweight and obese adults. If obesity among kids continues to increase at this rate, our current generation could become the first in history to live shorter and sicker lives than their parents.

To aid in curbing this growing epidemic, the Junior League of Savannah will host their third annual Fit Kids Fest on Saturday, April 18th, 2015 from 3-5PM at Optimist Field in Daffin Park.

The first 250 kids will receive free tickets to that evening’s Sand Gnats game and a free t-shirt.

Fit Kids Fest is a free community event, focused on increasing awareness and prevention of childhood obesity by providing children and their parents with resources and tools to help them make more educated choices and live active, healthy lifestyles.

Tummy Time Foods will be this year’s event,  hosting a healthy cooking demonstration for children and their families.
