President Obama plays football-video encouraging kids to get off the couch and be active

Posted on Dec 04, 2009 by Maggie LaBarbera

We know Michelle Obama has been promoting healthy eating and being active to kids but it looks like President Obama has joined in.activity_kids_exercise_healthy

In a new public service announcement, President Obama is seen playing football promoting physical fitness activity as part of the NFL 60 campaign. Kids need to be active at least 60 minutes a day.

We know kids spend too much time on the couch watching TV. To get kids off the couch, we need to find activities that they enjoy. Some kids love sports, others enjoy dance and others enjoy walking in nature. The important thing is to find the activities that your child really likes and then it won't be exercise but FUN!

Here is a list of ideas of fun activities you can do indoor and outdoor.

You might want to make it a fun contest to see how many minutes your child can log daily using our kid friendly "Be a Move It Kid" Agreement and our free "Be a Move It Kid" Tracking sheet to encourage physical activity.

Be patient and praise your child as they begin to change habits and move off the couch.

Remember, small changes add up to a healthy child!
