Parents, you can promote daily activities by setting a good example at home and leading an active lifestyle. In addition, participating in daily physical activity is something that the entire family can do together. Daily involvement in physical activity can help reduce the risk for long-term disease like diabetes and heart disease, reduce the risk of overweight and obesity, reduce stress and depression, and improve self-esteem. Activities can be inside or outside, planned or unplanned. We have included some fun ways to incorporate physical activities that your children will enjoy!
