A combination of physical exercise and healthy nutrition are extremely important in a child’s life. Exercise helps our bodies reach peak performance and can reduce serious health risks. Stronger bones, healthy joints and increased strength are only a few of the important benefits of exercise. Studies show that children who get the appropriate amounts of exercise also enjoy the ability to sleep better and have reduced stress.
As if those weren’t reason enough… but just in case. The earlier a child develops these healthy habits the greater the chance they continue throughout their lifetime. The majority of college and professional athletes had a great “love” and “passion” for playing when they were kids. Let’s help our kids find this same love in being active. Let’s get them off that couch and out of the house.
