THE BENEFITS OF KEEPING CHILDREN ACTIVE
It has been known for a while that exercise plays an important part in the fitness and wellbeing of children. The guidelines recommend children over the age of 6 should be getting at least 60 minutes of vigorous activities, such as running or biking, at least three days a week.
The lack of exercise for children can be detrimental. Not only are children at a higher risk of obesity and diabetes, but lack of exercise can have a negative impact on their mental health and well-being as well as their academic performance.
