Today’s children now have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. Why is this? Only 10 percent of children engage in enough daily activity. Approximately 30% of children are overweight or obese and this number continues to climb. This problem can be prevented with your help! As parents you can help your kids become more active beginning in early childhood. Promote their involvement in school sports teams such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, or tennis. The future health of our children depends on us! Get up & get moving! Check out this site to learn how you can help.
