Make playtime exercise time

(HealthDay News) -- Regular exercise helps keep children fit and healthy, and is a great way to use their boundless energy.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Offer your child a variety of playtime equipment to help keep the youngster moving.
  • Let the child decide what he or she enjoys doing during playtime.
  • Plan family activities that promote exercise, such as bike riding, playing catch or kicking a soccer ball.
  • Be a good role model by getting plenty of exercise yourself.
  • Always supervise your child while the youngster plays outdoors.
