Updated: Saturday, September 14 2013, 09:51 AM EDT

Cincinnati, OH (Liz Bonis)- Big cats, such as Cooper the therapy cat, are now part of the “Cancer Free Kids and Impact 100 Family Pet Center.”  


It's a common area in the courtyard at Children's Hospital which allows for pet therapy with your own pet.  


Kids such as Tommy, he has a neuromuscular disorder that impacts sight, say even if they can't see their own pets it’s good to feel them.  


In other health news: No matter your favorite, it probably makes a new list of fall superfoods from The Daily Green.  


It says the colors in these foods pack a powerful punch for hidden health benefits.  


And while there really are no bad fall foods, these foods make this list because they have exceptional nutrition. 


They are just a little different than a few of the traditional fruits and vegetables you might eat the rest of the year.   


For example a yellow watermelon tastes a little different than the pink kind.  


Get your basket ready, the fall foods suggested include: 


any color watermelon


corn


black beans  


soy beans-such as edamame


apples-which ohio state researchers recently found will help you drop bad cholesterol


brussels sprouts


kale


beets


fall tomatoes


butternut squash  


Finally- come on out and join us for Saturday, September 14th's "Strollathon."  It is happening at sawyer point and benefits children who have Rett Syndrome, a condition on the autism spectrum that impacts young girls.
