Kids playing outside is the healthiest way!

picture of Kids excercising

Are your kids getting the recommended daily exercise?  The Centers for Disease Control states that 20% of kids 6-11 years old are obese! Daily recommended time for active play or exercise varies by age but most kids should have physical activity at a minimum of 60 minutes!

I’ve found that kids playing outside is the healthiest way to get their daily exercise and the most fun! This is easy when you have a great playset like we do from Backyard Discovery. As a Backyard Discovery Brand Ambassador, I guest blogged on this very issue on their website. If you would like to learn more about childhood obesity and what you can do to prevent your child from headed down this road, please visit the Backyard Discovery blog and read my post!

This was not a paid post. My own opinions were used based on my perceptions and experience. Thank you to Backyard Discovery who supplied the product for review and the ongoing relationship with AkronOhioMoms.com.
