As we know, the waistband of the average American adult is expanding at a sickening rate, so much so that about one-third of all adults are now classified as obese. Something possibly less well known is the fact that over the past 30 years the number of obese children has nearly tripled, according to data and statistics from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
But, don’t let all those heavy statistics weigh you down just yet.
An online article from WeAreAustin.com, “To fight obesity, even babies should exercise,” the British government reveals that children under five should exercise everyday in order to form habits conducive to a healthy adult lifestyle. This doesn’t mean that we’re promoting baby boot camps, but forming healthy habits at a young age can only bring about good things!
The article goes on to say that walking children under five should be active for at least three hours a day, and infants not able to walk should be encouraged to play on their stomachs or swim with their parents. The British government hopes that by motivating children to be active, their chances of becoming obese in adulthood will be reduced.
