    Here at the South Mountain YMCA, we celebrated Healthy U Day on October 18th in all of our Child Care programs. This year, we wholeheartedly embraced the theme: Farm to School, Farm to You. Children from our Early Childhood Learning Center relished picking and tasting vegetables at local farms. Plus, farmers of all ages enjoyed an afternoon of yoga. We also asked families to talk about and create art projects revealing how they're becoming more active, eating right, watching less tv and spending fewer hours on electronics.
