footballIn the United States:

  • Seventy-six percent of children don’t do enough daily exercise to be healthy.
  • Only 3.7% of schools have daily gym classes.

Exercise is an important part of keeping children healthy. Teaching healthy habits to children and teens is important for when they grow older. Children who learn to enjoy exercise are more likely to be active adults. Changes in lifestyle are harder to make as a child grows older. The best way to build healthy exercise habits is for the whole family to be active.
