Our 2017 Summer of Amazing has come to an end, but it was an incredible few weeks of fun, games and health information! Each week at Mommy & Me (and Daddy too!) we dug into specific healthy topics like education, nutrition and exercise, and learned some fun facts about being active and healthy.

Then, at our final event–Kids’ Healthy Fun Fest–we welcomed more than 30 community partners to share their tips and tricks for leading healthy lives. Our friends from LSU Athletics brought athletes from the men’s and women’s basketball teams, volleyball teams, and swimming and diving. We also spotted Mike the Tiger, Dash the Gator with the Amazing Half Marathon and Carl the Crawfish with Crawfish Aquatics greeting kids all day.

Every year, we welcome more than 1,000 kids from across our area to enjoy these fun events, and we can’t wait to see you there next year!
