Family Health: Get Moving
Kids need at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day. Adults will benefit from that level of activity as well. Getting your family to move more can help all of you to get and stay healthy. You may want to enroll the kids in school/community sports teams, ride bikes, swim, go for a walk, get a zoo membership, shoot hoops together, garden, rake the lawn, or clean out the garage. Explore the different activities you can do together and separate to get everybody moving. A big hindrance to getting enough activity is screen time–you know, TV, computer, and video games. A good rule of thumb to start with is no more than 2 hours a day.
