Philadelphia Family Health & Wellness Guide 2021

Your guide for raising kids in Philly and beyond.

Presented by Nemours Children’s Health

“Healthy Habits Are As Addictive As Bad Habits, But Much More Rewarding!”

This Philadelphia Family Health & Wellness Guide is here to help you thrive, whether you’re a new or expecting parent, raising kids in the city, or are an empty-nester or grandparent, you’ll find useful tips, encouragement, and resources below.


Know someone who went above and beyond to support your kid’s health through the pandemic and beyond? Nominate them (or yourself!) for a 2021 Philadelphia Family Healthy Kids Champion award.

Philadelphia Family is published by a team of local women to connect families raising their kids in the city with resources, events, and each other. It all started with our vibrant Philly Family Community Facebook group dedicated to Building Community (join the conversation with our 5,000 local members!) and our Email Newsletters, which deliver our curated roundup of things to do in Philly and around the Main Line (virtually and in person), as well as our latest news and updates from local businesses, each week!

Sign up for YOUR High Five to get our curated roundup of things to do in Philly and around the Main Line (virtually and in person), as well as the latest guides and updates from local businesses, delivered straight to your inbox every Thursday.

The Philadelphia Family team was proud to present a $1,000 donation to Smith Memorial Playhouse and Playground on behalf of our Members and Communities at our annual LOVE Awards Celebration. A treasured destination for over 100 years, Smith strives to be Philadelphia’s foremost resource for play by providing opportunities for unstructured creative play for children 10 and younger. You can learn more about their intiatives (including a new Urban Nature Preschool!) at smithplayground.org.
