Staying active in winter

Staying active in winter

From an article forwarded to Today's THV from Children's Health Care of Atlanta

by Stephanie Walsh, M.D.

The winter be a season of little activity and over-indulging. As the weather cools down, children are often tempted to stay inside in front of the T.V. or a video game rather than play outside. Eating healthily can present additional challenges when faced with party buffets, holiday sweets and large family meals.

Don’t let winter stop you from staying healthy! Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, through its Strong4Life program, aims to help families tackle the issue of childhood obesity in Georgia. Getting more activity is a great way to balance the extra calories consumed this time of year. Remember that small steps can add up to big changes!

While there’s no harm in relaxing, there are a lot of fun ways you can stay active this winter. Try one of the ideas below to get everyone moving!
