Fighting childhood obesity
Now, more than ever, keeping children healthy should be a priority of all adults. Kids who are active at age 5 are more apt to stay lean at age 11 even if they don't remain as active. This effect is called "banking" because children benefit later on. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends kids get at least one hour of physical activity every day.
