 The central Kentucky YMCA held a "Healthy Kids" day to try and kick-start healthy behaviors in children.
 Studies say many children do not get the daily recommended hours of physical activity, reading and daily amounts of healthy foods.
 Central Kentucky YMCA joined 1,900 YMCA's across the country in this initiative.
 Around 1,500 children participated in Sunday's event.
 YMCA's Family Health Snapshot said only 19% of children get 60 minutes of physical activity 17% read books for fun and 12% eat at least eight fruits and vegetables daily.
