Play promotes Healthy Lives

Over 500 young adults were asked about their childhood play experiences and their present-day lifestyle factors such as weight and healthy behaviors, and found that those who reported more active or creative playtime as children were more likely to exercise and have a healthy diet as adults.  You can make a difference by providing ample opportunities for play.  Try keeping art supplies available and turning simple chores in to fun experiences, (like turning everyday tasks like clearing the dinner table into a rhyme and letting your child make up a few lines...)
