The Government Just Updated the Exercise Guidelines! Start ‘Em Young!
Oh, and another health tip for you. MOVE :)
That's the tone of the new federal guidelines when it comes to health.
Move more, sit less and get kids active as young as 3 years old
Only 20 percent of Americans are getting enough exercise and the amount of children who fall into the obese category has prompted researchers to take a look at the effects of starting to focus on physical activity younger -- I'm talking like 5 to even as young as 3 years old.
Their little brains are sponges, so once they understand how the body works and how important it is to stay active, they are more likely to do it. The minimum amount of time you should be moving around is at least one hour at least three times a week. Getting that heart rate up with walking, riding a bike or going to the trampoline park.
It's taking the baby steps to get you started and then finding your favorite ways to move!
Let's go for it!
