Exercise is good for you and your child!!
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommend 3 hours of physical activity a day for children age 3-5 years old! Who has time for that! And for children age 6 and older, they need 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
Exercise is good for everyone! It helps children focus at school, improves sleep, burns calories, boosts self esteem and builds strong bones and muscles.
It should be age appropriate- don't expect a toddler to walk for miles!!Plan ahead, bring snacks/ drinks, think of fun activities so your child enjoys himself. Walking around your neighborhood, playing in the yard and family bike rides all count. Be a good role model and encourage exercise for everyone in the family.
