Dean & St. Mary’s Teach Kids Healthy Habits

Educational Activities will be part of Healthy Habits Week at the Madison Children’s Museum

Madison – Dean and St. Mary’s are teaming up with the Madison Children’s Museum to keep kids healthy, active and learning over spring break.

During the week of March 25-29, museum visitors have the chance to learn all about various healthy habits through active play and interactive displays hosted by Dean Clinic, Dean Health Plan, Dean Foundation and St. Mary’s Hospital.

Here is a list of some of the week’s activities:

• Dean Clinic will explain the importance of choosing the right drink at the “Sugar in Your Drink” game where kids are asked to guess how much sugar is in their favorite drinks.

• At the Healthy Hand Washing station, kids will see why it’s so important to do a good job washing their hands every time through an interactive demonstration that shows just how many germs can linger if you don’t wash your hands thoroughly.

• The “Catching Healthy Habits” activity helps teach kids all about the importance of staying active and eating healthy when they create their own origami game.

• Dean Health Plan will be on hand to help teach kids about how much calcium they need every day and what foods can help them develop strong bones.

• Crash Helmet will also spend some time at the Children’s Museum next week teaching kids and their parents about the importance of helmet safety.

• St. Mary’s will have real human organs for kids to see and touch! Happy Heart will also at the museum to teach kids about the importance of staying active and having a healthy heart.
