PHYSICAL FITNESS FRIDAYS- KEEPING KIDS ACTIVE

Hey folks,

Happy Physical Fitness Friday to you! 

As we all know there is a huge epidemic we are currently facing with childhood obesity in this country.  It is of utmost important that all of us (whether we have children or not) do our best to educate young people about the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise.  Even if you're not a parent, you can certainly do your part to keep your nieces, nephews and Godchildren active.  So, for those of you that have children or around them regularly and you're looking for ways to keep them moving, check out http://www.kidshealth.org/. This site has informational sections for parents, kids and teens. The page I was checking out today in particular is under the kids tab with the heading "Why Exercise Is Cool", you can view it by clicking here.  Instilling the value of fitness and eating right in children at a young age is paramount to set them up for a healthy adulthood.  So let's keep our kids healthy!
