Just wondering. The amount of Obese people is seriously growing. Obesity is luckily something we can prevent, so why not start our children off with a great start.
obesity in teenagers aged 12 to 19 years has increased from 5% to 18.1%
obesity among children aged 6 to 11 years was 6.5%, in 2008 it reached 19.6%.
Sports is a great way to start, non impact sports especially, soccer, swimming, volleyball, dance, etc...Even if you have toddlers, there are non-organized sport/playgroups you can tend just to start a healthy habit.
Think of this: Consuming empty calories makes it harder to stay healthy. As kids get less active they aren't burning as many calories and that is when Obesity sets in. Think about how many hours a child has in class sitting...Now couple that with, how is a child expected to burn off those donuts, soda, chips, etc.
I urge you to see this chart at the link below...you can see what you personally can do to help get fit as well... http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/exercise/SM00109
