Up & about
Modern life has made things much more comfortable
for us - so comfortable, in fact, that most of us spend too long sitting down doing nothing much at all! Of course it's important to relax, but there's a difference between chilling out and vegging out. The fact is that kids who are inactive don't burn off enough energy and risk storing up fat in their bodies. The solution is simple - get up! Simply being up, about and moving burns calories and helps their muscles and bones grow healthy and strong.
Example tip: Setting a daily time limit for sitting still (e.g. '2 hours max') is a good way for parents to keep their kids active.
