Kids and Exercise

A recent report on The Daily Mirror says that British kids aren't getting the hour of exercise recommended each day for good health. What aboout American kids? The CDC also recommends an hour of exercise for US kids as well.

With the changes in education policy many schools are providing as much physical education classes. And, we all know how much our kids like to use computers at home.

What can you do? Send your kids outside to play. Bike, run with the family dog, or play basketball with their neighborhood pals. As parents, we can set a good example. Go on a family walk after dinner each night and show them how your make your own exercise a priority.

Good habits now will pay a lifetime of dividends.
