Get out for a walk
One of the easiest and effective ways for a moderate physical activity is to take your children for an evening walk along with you. Going out for a walk with your entire family in good weather is a decent physical activity to kick-start metabolism and workout the legs, along with spending some quality time all together. For the starters, a brisk walk of 10 to 15 minutes will be suitable and then the walking distance can be increased gradually in the following days.
This is the best physical activity that children don’t consider to be an exercise. Dancing involves extensive workout, moving every muscle of human body and sweating a lot. Encourage your children to dance and burn out the excessive fat in their bodies.
Keeping it simple
Medical experts recommend at least 30 minutes of intense activity for children every day. Keeping it simple for your children, you can just lead them to physical exercises and activities on daily basis. Basic exercises, including body stretching, arm windmills, waist twists, knee bends and squats, for 10 to 15 minutes daily will be very effective. Once tuned into exercises, this time span can be extended further.
Team sports like, basketball, baseball, soccer or football, are good sources of physical workouts. Gymnastics is even more challenging and effective to maintain weight. Encourage your children to spend their spare time in such activities and the results will be phenomenal.
One way or the other, you have to engage your overweight children in any sort of physical activity for healthy living.
