February is Heart Health Month and it is important to instil this on our children as well.  It is recommended that children participate in at least 60 minutes of activity a day.  Physical activity for our kids should be fun.  Get them off the couch and iPad, and have them play outside.  If it is too cold outside, take them to indoor jungle gyms.  A popular thing in our house (especially if you know my daughter) are dance parties.  We turn on music and dance our sillies out. It is great family bonding time, and we work up quite the sweat! Teaching our children healthy habits and lifestyle now will help them throughout life.
