When it comes to health, regular exercise is absolutely essential – and that goes for children and teens too. So how can you get your kids off the couch and onto the sports field?

Take action:
Be active with your children – take family walks and bike rides; encourage your children to try different sports and activities – they may find one they really enjoy; contact your friends who have children, and bring your youngsters together on a regular basis – children who are alone or stay at home are more likely to be sedentary; scout out parks and recreation facilities in your area to see if they have hiking trails, bike paths and places to go swimming or canoeing.
