Staying Active with your Kids, so you Both can Benefit!


I wanted to share one tid-bit about children. Kids need about *1 hour of exercise per day* to maintain good health and fitness as their bodies grow.


On days when it's not raining kids can play at the park (the new climber at Golden Gardens is awesome, if you have not tried it yet you must go there), take a bike/scooter ride, play soccer and other sports. There are also indoor climbing gyms, the Zoomazium at the zoo, places like High Sky Sports (trampoline arena in Bellevue), the Seattle Gymnastics Academy has programs as well.


The other component of maintaining good health for kids is what they eat. This can be a challenge as we all know, especially if they are picky eaters (like mine).


Below is an article about ways of helping to keep our kids healthy and fit as it relates to the foods we eat and exercise. hildhood-obesity.aspx?xid=nl_EverydayHealthChildrensHealth_20111001
