Now more than ever, it is important to keep our kids active. Adults and children who are typically active may have seen a decrease in their physical activity during the quarantine. Playgrounds have been closed, organized sports have been canceled, and children are not playing outside with other children as much.
The outdoors is especially good for children. Playing outside helps children strengthen their muscles and bones. Playing outside can help in preventing obesity. Studies have shown that children who play outside can reduce their risk of being nearsighted.
