Good to Grow: Advancing Children's Health through Play at Discovery Gateway

Did you know that Discovery Gateway is a certified Good to Grow! museum?

In 2011, Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum was recognized as a Good to Grow museum by the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) for making significant strides to promote health and wellness to children and families. Discovery Gateway is one of only seven children’s museums in the country to receive the Good to Grow designation. Good to Grow is a health initiative created by ACM to combat childhood obesity. Its key messages are eating good foods, getting plenty of exercise, reducing screen time, and connecting with the outdoors. Research has shown that if children are exposed to healthy lifestyles during early childhood they will follow that path throughout their lives. Discovery Gateway is committed to helping Utah families improve their lifelong health and wellness. Look for the Good to Grow logo on our monthly calendar of workshops and classes.
