It’s no secret that America’s kids are facing an obesity problem of epic proportions. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that childhood obesity has more than doubled in kids aged 6-19 since 1980. More troubling than that is the fact that studies show that obese children are more likely to suffer from low self esteem and bullying from their peers and classmates.
Any parent can tell that at an early age children are naturally physically active. They love to climb on things, play and move around. As children get older, they begin to develop more sedentary habits from video games, tablets and smart devices. It’s important to reinforce a balanced lifestyle that challenges your child to stay fit, healthy and active.
There are many benefits to motivating your kids to be active, including:
- Weight control
- Decreased risk of diabetes
- Strong and healthy muscles and bones
- Cultivating a positive attitude
