We’ve all heard about the rising epidemic of childhood obesity. The reality is once a child is overweight or obese it is unlikely that they will spontaneously revert to a healthy weight, predisposing them to serious health concerns as adults.
So here are a few ideas to get the little ones moving throughout the day:
Encourage kids to take part in aerobic exercise for at least 20 minutes at a time. Talk to them about their interests and what sport or activity they’d like to engage in. For regular exercise and fun with friends, try organised sports and activities, such as soccer, tennis, cricket, rugby, hockey, dancing, netball or athletics – whatever takes their fancy.
Active kids are more likely to become active adults, so teach them to enjoy it now!
