This day is celebrated in the United States to help raise people’s awareness of how they can protect and develop children’s health.
Each year since 1928, under a joint Resolution of Congress, the President of the United States has proclaimed Child Health Day. This day was originally celebrated on each May 1 until 1960 when the date was changed to the first Monday in October of each calendar year.
In a response to a plea from both the American Federation of Labor and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs to proclaim the day, United States President Calvin Coolidge was the first president to issue a Child Health Day Proclamation while the resolution was still pending in Congress.
