Summer Family Fitness

According to the June/July issue of Working Mother magazine, summer family fitness is easy and important to incorporate into the summer schedule. School's out, which means less interaction with peers and possible weight gain for some kids. A new study from the University of Buffalo found that children my resort to eating and other sedentary activities when there are no available alternatives. An example would be during the summer there are no kids to hang out with on a daily basis like in school. So make sure your child is social this summer. If he/she is not already signed up for summer activities, below are some ideas.

2. Swimming teams or just swimming 1-3 times a week
3. Local library summer reading programs
4. Art museums may have classes
5. Sport camps
6. Local universities have programs for students
7. Summer camps with academic and physical activities included
8. Movies with friends, but make sure there are adults supervising.
9. Nature walks and hikes
10. Camping, fishing, and boating
