Let's Get Physical!
Make physical fitness a priority by involving the whole family to join the fun! Experts recommend children participate in physical activity of moderate to vigorous intensity at least 60 minutes daily to increase health benefits and improve well-being. Parents and children choosing a time out of the week for indoor or outdoor activities is a good way to encourage both exercise time and family time as well.
