Looking to do Something with the Little Ones?

Summer is officially here! What a great time to be active!

Did you know that the American Heart Association recommends that kids spend at least 60 minutes a day being physically active? I.E. Swimming, after school programs, team sports, and even some time on the playground.

Fitness is something that is beneficial not only for adults but children as well. An active child is less likely to have weight issues later in life or develop illnesses brought upon by poor nutrition or a sedentary lifestyle. That is why it is extremely important to establish healthy, fun, and safe habits at a young age.

Interested in learning more? Here is a great resource for kids and adults alike provided by the AHA. This site provides great ideas on activities, food, and so much more!
