National Child Health Day - 2021-10-04
What is National Child Health Day?
Child health is every parent’s priority. The sad reality is that not every child has access to quality healthcare. With many children living in poverty, National Child Health Day was created to focus on this issue. This awareness is aimed at bringing about changes that focus on the physical and mental wellbeing of children across the United States. On National Child Health Day, become involved at a children’s hospital or non-profit organization that assists children in receiving basic healthcare. You can also start with your own family by teaching your children healthy habits and sharing those with other parents as well.
When is National Child Health Day?
National Child Health Day is celebrated on the first Monday of October. This year, we celebrate this day on October 4th, 2021.
History of National Child Health Day
National Child Health Day was founded on May 1st, 1928, by the then President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge. In 1960, it was changed to the first Monday in October by a Joint Resolution of Congress to highlight the importance of child health and health services in the U.S.A.
