Everyone can benefit from regular exercise and for young children, exercise means playing and being physically active. Kids who are active tend to have stronger muscles and bones, a leaner body, a decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and generally lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels as well as a better outlook on life.
