Exercise recommendations may not curb kids’ weight

Reuters Health is reporting on a UK study that suggests health experts generally recommend that children get at least one hour of moderate exercise each day. However, the study says this may not be enough to counter the problem of childhood obesity.

My Take?

That study is NOT saying that exercise has no health benefits for children. Rather, that exercise alone may not be the answer for the epidemic of childhood obesity.

That’s why, in my book, SuperSized Kids: How to protect your child from the obesity threat, I recommend the entire family choose from a menu of nutrition, exercise, activity and sleep choice. You can find my 8-Week Family Fitness Plan here
