What we don’t want
Children around the world are failing when it comes to being active. Every child needs at least 60 minutes a day outside in order to get healthy benefits to their body. here is a list of the benefits.
Besides enjoying the benefits of a regular exercise, for kids who are physically fit, sleep better. They are also better able to handle physical and emotional challenges, from running to catch the bus to studying for a test.
The main cause of child obesity is from spending time on electronics. When you play on electronics for a long time, your brain gets messed up and goes crazy. But instead of kids doing all of this they should be outside getting active. According to the Kaseir family 9-19 year olds watch about 4.5 hours of TV a day and spend seven hours on other electronic devices such as iPhone, iPad, video games, and etc.. One of the best ways to get rid of child obesity is to get rid of the sedentary problem. That is why I need your help to halt child obesity. You need to tell your friends and teach them that they need to only be on electronics for 1-2 hours a day.
Another great way to stop child obesity is to play sports. Sports help get your body moving. There are so many different sports to chose from that can get you agile. If you don’t try all different kinds of sports you wont know if you like it or not, so you have to try lots. If you don’t like team sports, you can try individual sports, competitive or not. Here is a list of sports that you can play.

Some kids don’t like sports, because they tried it and kids made fun of them for making a simple mistake. But everybody makes mistakes and nobody should tease you for it. Sports also have a monstrous impact on kids personality. Kids will have fun doing sports without even knowing that they are being active. Some kids come home with their heads down, but knowing that they have sport activity after school they will be happy. Kids will also learn about good sportsmanship and how to work together with teammates.
Some kids just say what is the big deal about sports. Well when your active you are happy. It works all the time. When you are happy you don’t bug people. When people are happy, everybody is happy. Don’t you see what being active can do? Well thanks for listening and I hope you know what to do now. Go tell your friends to get active!
