Children and Exercising Routines


After warming up, your child should perform fifteen to forty minutes of a regular exercise each day. This can include fast walking, jogging, biking, roller blading, running, swimming, jumping rope or group activities, such as playing soccer, hockey, volleyball, baseball, basketball, or football.

You should also encourage regular physical activity as part of your child's regular daily routine. This can include:
  • Walking or riding your bike instead of driving for short distances.
  • Taking a walk with a friend or walk the family dog each afternoon.
  • Using stairs instead of escalators or elevators, especially if you have to walk out of your way to find the stairs.
  • Parking your car at the end of the parking lot and walking to the entrance of the mall or grocery store.
  • Chores, such as doing yardwork or housework.
  • Family exercise: go for routine family walks or bike rides in the neighborhood or local park.
