is a growing concern in America. On average, kids spend between five and six hours a day on media driven activities and not enough time on physical activity. Kids and teens are just not getting enough exercise to live a long and healthy
In order to raise awareness about this issue, the Will Rogers Institute created “Kid Fit,” a public service announcement that encourages kids to get 60 minutes of physical activity a day, even if it means just going outside and playing. Studies show that kids and teens that are active reduce the risk of obesity, heart disease, and anxiety, as well as increase their overall mood.
WRI is also offering a FREE
booklet, “Fitness is Fun,” that’s full of fun and engaging activities that help children
, parents and caregivers understand the importance of proper nutrition and exercise.
