These days it’s getting more and more difficult to keep kids active and healthy with exercise. With video games, computers, mobile phones and other sedentary activities adolescents and teens are more overweight than they have ever been before.
Kids that snack on junk food and don’t get outside or to the gym will be more likely to grow up as an obese adult. Powell Pediatrics explains that healthy exercise is imperative for growing boys and girls.
One of the best ways to involve your kids in exercise is to do something together as a family. Go on a weekly bike ride, or take a walk with the entire family every night after dinner. You can also sign your son or daughter up for a team sport such as baseball, softball, soccer, or football. Other sports that will keep your kids active include swimming, tennis, golf, and track and field.
Get your kids away from those sedentary activities and help them enjoy the great outdoors with Healthy Exercise.
