Kids need physical activity too
Physical activity is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. In combination with healthy eating, it can help prevent a range of chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, and stroke, which are the three leading causes of death. Physical activity helps control weight, builds lean muscle, reduces fat, promotes strong bone, muscle and joint development, and decreases the risk of obesity.
Children need 60 minutes of play with moderate to
vigorous activity every day to grow up to a healthy weight.
Habits are learned early in life, so being active and eating healthy as a child can create lifelong health for your child.
