Encouraging children to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day helps prevent childhood obesity.
St. Augustine, Fla. (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
BYO Recreation (BYO) is pleased to help promote Family Health and Fitness Day.
The event’s overall purpose is to promote the importance of family involvement in physical activity, a goal BYO shares. BYO’s mission is to create more play for children, which in turn creates more physical activity. Playground equipment, especially structures that are geared specifically for fitness, promotes physical development in kids.
This Saturday, Sept. 28, marks the 17th annual Family Health and Fitness Day. BYO Recreation challenges families nationwide to get outside and get active. They suggest visiting a playground, going for a walk in the neighborhood or park, or visiting one of the local events taking place in honor of the day. Local organizations, like YMCAs and schools, throughout the country will host family-related health and fitness events. Check local news outlets for more information.
Although September is the month to focus on fitness and nutrition, parents and families should try to make healthy choices year-round. Encouraging children to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day helps prevent childhood obesity and is a great way to get the whole family moving.
