Savannah Children’s Museum to Host Second ‘Healthy Me’ Event

SAVANNAH, GA – Aug. 16, 2017 – Savannah Children’s Museum will host a day of healthy living and family fun, showcasing our many health and wellness programs and great community partnerships. The event, called “Healthy Me,” will take place on Saturday, September 9th from 10 am to 2 pm at Savannah Children’s Museum, 655 Louisville Rd. Savannah, GA 31401.

“Savannah Children’s Museum is invested in bringing hands-on edible food education to the community by sharing gardening and cooking with children, by providing the tools necessary to incorporate healthy foods into their diet and by promoting exercise and movement as an activity that can be fun and enjoyed every day,” said Jesse Rosenblum, Director of Community Advocacy and Food Education.

The event will feature Coastal Heritage Society’s Mobile Museum programs, including Charlie Cart, Cooking Matters and Bonnie’s Garden. Savannah Children’s Museum educators will also be leading interactive programming at several of the Savannah Children’s Museum exhibits that encourage fitness.

Many of our community partners will be on-site, including Yogi Palz offering a kids yoga class, Loop It Up Savannah leading activities with food and art, Healthy Savannah sharing about health and wellness, and the Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah will be leading activities and crafts.

We encourage families to participate in our healthy picnic contest at Sugar Beet Bluff, located adjacent to Savannah Children’s Museum. To enter, take a picture of your picnic spread, post on Facebook and tag Savannah Children’s Museum. Send the photo via Facebook messenger to our Savannah Children’s Museum Facebook page.
