Kids' Health Matters- Putting It Into Practice
WLOS, ABC News 13, stopped by Mission Hospital to talk with our Exercise Specialist, Tricia Kelly. Have a look at the video coverage here. Below is an excerpt from the article.
One in three children in the U.S. is overweight or obese. News 13's Special Series Kids' Health Matters wrapped up this morning with some practical ways to make healthy living a habit.
Mission Exercise Specialist Tricia Kelly says you can turn any room into a gym. Freeze dancing, Imitating your favorite animal, Balloon Volleyball, or Game Timer Olympics are good options. And moms really like Sock Basketball where you have the kids try to toss their socks or other clothes into the hamper. Then they take a victory lap. In the end the kids have their exercise and clean rooms.
