    Hi Jen and Barb,

    Thank you so much for talking about healthy activity for kids and having me on your show to share the message. You’re wonderful moms!

    To expand on the subject of “vigorous” activities, here’s a link to a list of moderate to vigorous activities put together by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control):

    All the best,

      kids should participate in organized sports to get proper physical conditioning and discipline. Also the interaction with others is crucial for team play

      • Karen Owoc says:

        I agree with you, Dan, and support organized sports. The athletic experience provides more than a healthy heart and mind. It’s the key to developing functional whole adults. Sports teach girls how to compete, aim high, and persevere in an open, legitimate way. Boys learn how to connect, how to bond, and turn dreams into goals also in an open, legitimate way. These are lessons that teach kids how to prepare for life and become healthy contributing adults.
