Obesity is one major health problem in our society. The problem of childhood obesity in the United States has grown considerably in recent years. Obesity is among the easiest medical conditions to recognize but most difficult to treat. This unhealthy weight gain due to poor diet and lack of exercise is responsible for over numerous deaths each year. Overweight children are much more likely to become overweight adults unless they adopt and maintain healthier patterns of eating and exercise.
Children of today’s generation need guidance. Kids as young as 3 years old already know how to play computer games and they usually get addicted to it as they play each day. As a result they get them selves engrossed to computer games, eat improperly, and gain unhealthy weight because of little physical activity. It is of these reasons why we need to get our children to enroll in physical education program such as Spark PE.
When we send our kids to school that is approved with PEP Grant 2010. We have to make sure that they get themselves involved in Physical Education. Let us get them to a school which avails of research-based organizations that disseminates evidence-based Physical Education, After School, Early Childhood, and Coordinated School Health program to teachers and recreation leaders. With that we can be assured that our kids learn how to keep themselves healthy and would put whatever they learn into practice.
