Like adults, kids too need exercise. As kids spend more time watching TV, they spend less time running and playing. Parents should limit TV, video game and computer time. Parents can set a good example by being active themselves.

Kids and teens should get 60 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily. Toddlers and preschool children should play actively several times a day. Toddlers should get at least 60 minutes active play every day and pre-schoolers should have at least 120 minutes active play every day. Regular exercise has many benefits for children. It can help them:

Feel less stressed
Feel better about themselves
Feel more ready to learn in school
Keep a healthy weight
Build and keep healthy bones, muscles and joints
Sleep better at night

Combining regular physical activity with a healthy diet is the key to a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips for raising fit kids:

Help your kids do in a variety of age-appropriate activities.
Set a regular schedule for physical activity.
Make being active a part of daily life, like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
Embrace a healthier lifestyle yourself, so you'll be a positive role model for your family.
Be active together as a family.
Keep it fun, so your kids will come back for more.

Exercising together can be fun for everyone. Competitive sports can help kids stay fit. Walking or biking to school, dancing, bowling and yoga are some other ways for kids to get exercise.
