The obesity rate for children in this age is staggering. Where when I was growing up it wasn’t even half as common. The difference is what we allow our kids to eat and do. Most kids spend more time in front of an electronic pacifier of sorts, instead of outside running and being kids. It is one of the downfalls of such a modern and technological advanced society. But there are still ways to encourage kids fitness and still make them fell like they are playing a video game!
