Get Up, Get Out, Get Moving

The statistics on overweight and obese kids in America is staggering, but whats worse is that most parents don't know how to combat it. Most parents think that turning off the T.V. or Game Cube will solve the problem, when in fact the problem is us! That's right, us, as in parents. We have a do as I say, not as I do attitude towards our children's health.

When was the last time you took your children's on a family hike? Played football in your yard? Went on a bike ride? We all want our kids to be healthy but we don't have, or can't find the time to do it ourselves. Our children learn by example.

Be a good example to them. Even skinny kids need plenty of exercise and fresh air to help their brain and body develop. Get your family out of the house, turn off the T.V., get them moving. You'll be doing something great for them and good for yourself as well.

Stay tuned for some great ideas and ways to keep your family active.
