Children need to be fit! Don’t forget to exercise! Phisical activity provides many benefits for our kids
Phisical activity provides many benefits for our kids like:
-reducing blood pressure
-raising HDL (“good”) cholesterol
-reducing the risk of diabetes and some kinds of cancer
-improved psychological well-being, including gaining more self-confidence and higher self-esteem
It may also improve your child behaviour and attention or better sleep!
Here is the AHA Recommendation ( The American Heart Association) for all children age 2 and older:
Participate in at least 60 minutes of enjoyable, moderate-intensity physical activities every day that are developmentally appropriate and varied.
If your child or children don’t have a full 60-minute activity break each day, try to provide at least two 30-minute periods or four 15-minute periods in which they can engage in vigorous activities appropriate to their age, gender and stage of physical and emotional development.
