"Good for You: Healthy fun on the Run" Returns for a final show
Childhood obesity ranks as one of the most important issues facing the United States. With this in mind, Creative Discovery Museum developed Good for You: Healthy Fun on the Run as part of the Museum's health initiative to teach children and their families that living healthy, active lifestyles can be both fun and easy. The exhibit was originally developed by the Museum and is based off the children's book, "Good for You: Adventures with Ginger and George," written by Lynne Mulligan, Creative Discovery former Senior Programs Manager.
In the exhibit, visitors learn about healthy lifestyles while exploring many hands-on exhibits that present concepts in a fun and engaging way for children and their families. Visitors also learn about healthy food choices as they pick authentic-looking fruits and vegetables in Sam's Garden and sell them at Maria's Farmer's Market.
"With one in five children in the United States now considered overweight, unless their behavior and poor lifestyle choices are identified and corrected, many of them will go on to develop serious medical problems," said Henry Schulson, Executive Director of Creative Discovery Museum. "By partnering and collaborating with families, schools, health care professionals and organizations, we have the ability to promote healthy lifestyle choices for all children. Good for You is a huge step toward fulfilling that vision."
