Summer is here and it’s time to start thinking about how you’d like your little one to spend all of their free time. As you know, children are no longer confined to their classrooms and the controlled schedule of school. This kind of new freedom for the summer months, generally leads to laziness and declining activity levels for children.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), recommends a maximum of 2 hours of television a day for children but unfortunately, the average American child will probably spend more than double that this summer. As a whole, it’s no mystery that our country is being presented with a epidemic of health related problems, due to unhealthy weight and children are no exception. The number of overweight preschoolers has doubled over the past ten years, with childhood obesity as a whole tripling over the past 25! Those are some scary numbers when you think of the health risks, that are involved with childhood obesity from diabetes to heart complications.
So the question is, do you want them to be wasting away in front of a TV or inside the house? Or do you want them to be physically and mentally engaged, in a positive atmosphere that will build their character and confidence?
