Fighting Child Obesity and Keeping Your Kids Healthy

We know how important it is for children to be active and to get exercise. Most children enjoy being physically active, and the exercise they get while they play contributes to the development of strong bones and muscles. Unfortunately, there are an increasing number of barriers to exercise for kids in today’s modern world. Television and video games, parents who work long hours, cuts to the physcial education programs and recess in school can make it difficult for kids to get the minimum amount of exercise they need to be healthy.

Teaching your children to develop healthy habits is important to their health and development and can benefit them well into the future. Kids who follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly are more likely than kids who are sedentary to stay active as adults. Although more research needs to be done, at-risk children who are physically active on a regular basis reduce their risk of developing chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes as adults, reports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Also, building strong bones, particularly during adolescence, may reduce your child’s risk of developing osteoarthritis later in life.
