BROOKFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) — The CDC estimates 80 percent of kids aren’t physically active enough. As we wrap up National Children’s Health Month we’re looking at ways to improve that number.
Life Time Athletic in Brookfield has some ideas to help turn the trends around in a more positive direction. The experts say one of the biggest things you can do as a parent is to lead by example. You can show your child how to be active. Better yet, you can actively workout with them.
A proper diet also goes hand-in-hand with getting your child healthier.
Dietitians say parents should find fun ways to incorporate healthier foods into your kid’s meals and stress the importance of drinking water.
