Metro Fit Kids
Over the past two decades, there’s been a devastating increase in the number of obese children and adolescence in the United States. Childhood obesity is considered a major health problem because it may lead to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease caused by high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol, asthma, sleep apnea, and even social discrimination. But worst of all, obese children and adolescence may experience weight-related health problems well into their adulthood.
Unfortunately, this trend will continue and may hit close to home for many American families if educational tools and physical fitness programs are pushed aside. That’s why Metro Fit Kids was created – to encourage children of all ages, shapes and sizes to receive a minimum of 30-minutes of fun, physical activity a day. With Metro Fit Kids, children will not only participate in an exercise class like yoga or any cardio-based activity, but they’ll also enjoy a healthy snack while receiving basic nutritional education.
Sure, technology can be an easy babysitter and junk food can make a convenient snack or meal, but those are only short-term fixes that may develop into negative behavior as your child grows up. Be smart, be proactive, and take responsibility for the health of your child. Chances are they’ll thank you someday.
