There are many more ways to be active than people realize. Here are some activities that families can enjoy doing together.
Studies show that exercising daily has a positive effect on kids’ learning ability, memory, problem-solving, and decision making, not to mention creativity and improved behavior. In fact, it is recommended by the American Heart Association that all children age 2 and older should get involved in at least 1/2 hour of enjoyable, moderate-intensity activities each day, for example: walking, swimming and riding bikes. They should also get at least 1/2 hour of vigorous physical activity 3-4 days per week “to achieve and maintain a good level of cardiovascular fitness.”
The choices that are made as a family regarding physical activity and healthy eating will help to lead your child to a lifetime of healthy living.
