Parents are trying to teach their children to lead healthier lifestyles at a younger age. This is great and I hope more parents start taking up this approach to help with the awful obesity problems plaguing the United States.
The ways with which we can achieve a better fitness and health, we can do the following things with our family:-
This has to be my top activity to do with children. Most kids love being out in the neighborhood on their bike but also don’t hesitate to take them to the park, or on a nearby trail and let them enjoy the outdoors from a young age.
The lake or the river are a great destination for this activity, make sure you have an adult with the children and be patient with them. Teach them to the proper way to paddle and any safety information you need to pass on to them, before going out. Don’t forget the life jackets!
Go to the park or the beach (my favorite) and play Frisbee, don’t leave the little ones out either, it is also fun to play in the knee-deep water.
Or you could just go out and throw a ball around, be it a basketball, baseball, nerf ball, play tag with your kids. They will probably brag about it at school that their mom and dad come out and play tag with them, or duck, duck, goose even.
Have fun with them, on whatever activity you decide.
These are just a few examples of activities your whole family can enjoy, add your suggestions to the comments!
