    Great picture graph for kids and parents to use as they seek to eat healthy and be healthy! Sprout Peds is hosting the upcoming Pumpkin Run at the Northwest YMCA as a way to promote healthy lifestyles for all, but we are especially encouraging people with special needs and disabilities to learn to be active early in life for a lifetime of wellness! #sproutfit #wellness
