About 9 million American children are overweight, and that population is—quite literally—widening. The population of obese kids has actually tripled in the past thirty years. Childhood obesity leads to diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels. As a parent, one of the best things you can do is encourage your kids to get moving! With children, actions speak louder than words, so don’t waste time talking about exercise…just get out and do it! (If you exercise with your kids, they’ll want to play too—and you’ll get a work-out in, as well! Rainy day? Try renting a simple exercise tape or DVD and doing it together. Kids, especially younger ones, love making up moves to do to a taped routine. Encourage this by trying their suggestions. These days, many gyms also offer “kiddie” classes, so your little ones can get fit while you sneak in your own work-out. Whatever you and the kids decide to do, ensure that it’s active! They’ll thank you in the “long run.”
