Tips to get kids moving
- Reinforce that exercise is fun! Avoid emphasis on winning.
- Model active behavior. Join your children for a bike ride, a ball game or a long walk.
- Use physical activity as a reward, such as a family canoe trip or berry-picking outing.
- Make it part of the daily routine: simple chores such as raking leaves, painting or walking the dog are effective ways to increase activity.
