May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services tells us that youth need 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day where they live, learn, and play. In addition to health benefits, regular activity gets the brain charging. Research shows that when children are physically active, they achieve higher grades, record better attendance and their behavior improves.
Since 2009, NJPHK has been focused on helping children and communities achieve a healthy weight through prevention strategies that support access to affordable healthy foods and increase opportunities for safe physical activity. The goal is to make the healthy choice the easy choice for everybody.SHARE:
