More Than Child’s Play: Why Physical Activity Matters

February 28th, 2011 by mike Leave a reply »

Increased use of cars and video games, the reduction of physical education and availability of unhealthy food all contribute to high rates of childhood obesity and sedentary lifestyles in Kentucky and across the country.  But, there are ways to help all children be physically active, improving their health as well as their academic, emotional and social well-being.  Viewers explore the issue in More Than Child’s Play:  Why Physical Activity Matters, part of KET’s Be Well health initiative.  This program is funded in part by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.
