We all know that good health is a habit that is best developed at a young age. With the lure of easy entertainment at our fingertips, it’s even harder for parents to get their children out and active.
Here are a few tips to get your children more active this summer;
1) Do physical activities with your children – Make a commitment to their health and set aside time every day to take a walk with your children, go play a round of mini golf, kick around a soccer ball. They’ll love spending time with you and you’ll feel the benefits as well.
2) Power down – Spend time away from mobile phones, laptops and tablets and your children will follow your behaviour.
3) Increase their summertime responsibilities – With school out, children have more time to help out around the house. Make them responsible for maintaining a flower bed, cutting the grass, or watering indoor plants.
