How can you help your kids eat healthier? A large part of healthy kid nutrition is related to adequate levels of physical activity
Kids who are active do a better job making healthier food choices when compared to non-active or less-active kids. This is the same phenomenon observed in adults – active adults tend to weigh less, have less disease and have a healthier diet. So the first step to healthier children is to get them active for one hour, seven days a week. Physical activity is any physical movement that increases heart rate, increases breathing rate, and makes them sweat. Playing games, exercising, horseback riding, sports participation, or anything else that gets them up and moving is acceptable.
