Start Them Young!
The percentage of kids who are overweight has quadrupled since the 1970s. It’s basically starting in the playpen. It’s not one specific reason, but a combination of factors. Kids are surrounded by high-calorie foods, and they don’t have as many opportunities to run and burn off those calories.TV keeps kids stuck on the couch and gives them the opportunity to be exposed to endless advertisements for fast food and junk food, and it gives them an opportunity to snack. During this school holiday, you want to get them to start running for their health.........
This interesting internet site, Kids Running.com may be a starting point to get them off the couch and their butt out the doors... Start Running.... Good Lucks.
