With iPads, video games, TV, and smart phones, it’s getting harder and harder to keep kids moving. However, like poor diet, a lack of exercise is a key cause of obesity. Unlike an adult’s interpretation of exercise, which may include treadmills and dumbbells, kids just need to get outside and run around. Enrolling them in a dance program or an after school soccer club will keep them active. Regular exercise can lower a child’s blood pressure, reduce their blood cholesterol levels, and help them sleep better.
