Encouraging Healthy Children

Not getting enough physical activity has been shown to cause weight gain in children. Encourage children to play at least 30 to 60 minutes a day. Go for family walks or bike rides. Play sports or join a boy's and girl's club. Walk instead of riding in a car.

Limit TV and video games to no more than one hour a day. Remove the TV from the child's bedroom. Jump rope, dance skate, or play Frisbee with your child. Take your family to the park or pool.
