According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the prevalence of obesity for children ages 2-5 has almost doubled since the early 1970's! The National Association for Sports and Physical Education recommends that preschoolers accumulate at least 60 minutes of structured and another 60 minutes of unstructured physical activity a day, but while kids under 6 love to move - we need to encourage fitness in a fun manner. On today's show, Debi and Elissa share some balloon activities and other information to help preschoolers develop a joy for movement - it offers so many life-long benefits!
