Coming Soon: Gyms For Infants!
Just saw this report today that indicates that babies, yes little babies, should be exercising! Researchers are saying that even the kids who can't walk yet should be getting some exercise.The overweight epidemic has been not only sweeping the USA but it is a problem in the UK as well. The report says that almost 90 percent of adults in the UK will be heavy by the year 2050 if something is not done to prevent the alarming climb in obesity!
"It's vital that parents introduce children to fun and physically active pastimes to help prevent them becoming obese children, who are likely to become obese adults at risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers," Maura Gillespie, head of policy and advocacy at the British Heart Foundation, said in a statement.
Perhaps there is some money to be made? I am thinking a gym for infants. Little treadmills and elliptical? Perhaps there is room for personal trainers for babies?
