October is International Walk to School Month. Taking-on childhood obesity is a noble and worthwhile effort. If your kids struggle with weight they need to be encouraged to exercise. Visit the International Walk to School Month Web site and organize walks in your neck of the woods.
John F. Kennedy famously said “We are under exercised as a nation. We look instead of play. We ride instead of walk. Our existence deprives us of the minimum of physical activity essential for healthy living.“
Kids who live far from school and take the bus can organize walks to other bus stops or walking once they arrive on school grounds.
Encouraging exercise and good eating habits should be a no-brainer, but childhood obesity, diabetes and other health issues are on the rise.
