5. Sneak in exercise.

Ask your child to perform chores that require physical activity but that are still fun. For example, washing a car, gardening, or raking leaves will get their hearts pumping. Keep it fun by having a water fight after cleaning the car or having a race to see who can make the biggest heap of leaves. Then jump in the winning pile. Though the chore may end up taking twice as long to complete, the results will be worth it.

Next:  6. Walk the walk.

Lack of daily activity and food has brought our kids to the level where they have dificulties working out in kindergarten or just outside. The technology is their preocupation and it is our/parents fault. Kids should exercise at least an hour a day. To keep them active we developed Yuvi - Story Aerobics for Kids. The program is suitable for kids age 2-6. They help Yuvi to rescue all the toys by copying (exercising) him. You can find out more about the programm on www.yuvi-aerobics.com
