By: Beth Shiller

The numbers don’t lie..Childhood obesity is up 30%!

So now more than ever, kids should be getting an hour of exercise every day.

Studies have shown that one hour of exercise a day can improve the future health of children. It increases bone and muscle growth, a better outlook on life and a better chance of carrying these habits into adulthood all while decreasing the risks of high blood pressure, cholesterol and type 2 Diabetes.

If the weather is bad, like it is every winter, and you can’t get your kids outdoors try these tricks to keep them moving.

If they are watching TV, during commercials or on the Internet, every 15 minutes:

  1. Jog in place
  2. Jumping jacks
  3. Sit ups/ push ups
  4. Get up and stretch
  5. Go build a snowman

Create anything active and if there’s siblings, make it a competition. There are countless ways to remain active.

In this day and age, even though we should strive for an hour of exercise, every little bit helps.
