In order to survive and thrive, humans need several elements in their lives. They need food, water, air and other key components. All are equally important in the growth and development of babies and toddlers. However, an often overlooked element is as important in order to aid in development. That element is exercise.
Exercise is very important in the growth and health of children. At an early age it is important for children to move and to become active. Starting with basic exercises while a baby, children can start early on the first steps on the journey to a lifetime of health and fitness.
Depending upon the age of your child will guide you to the types of exercise that your child can do. As a baby, your child is limited to parents moving the arms and legs of babies. This can help get children used to moving and being active. As your child ages, the types of exercise can become more involved. Instead of just moving, games can help younger children by getting them running, jumping, throwing and other helpful cardiovascular exercises.
Getting your baby moving at an early age is important in starting them on the road to health. To assist parents and caretakers in providing children of all ages with exercises and games to get them active, we have put together the following information. Please feel free to use this information with your children, and we wish them a happy and healthy life!
