All ages; non-readers will need assistance.

Normally, I don’t feature Physical Education on ClickSchooling, but this note from Louise Clare of the “Kids Exercise” website intrigued me:

“We have created a public interest website that focuses on keeping your kids fit, active and healthy, which I thought may be of interest to your readers. We don’t make any profit from the site but we’d like to spread the word and get the information out to as many people as possible.”

Essentially this site archives interesting articles with tips and advice for keeping your kids active and fit by providing exercise and nutrition ideas!

When you get to the site, you’ll see instructions at the top of the screen for how to navigate the site. Below that are some featured articles of interest. Use the menu on the left to access many articles by experts and journalists on these topics:

  • Fit Families – Learn how to make time for family fitness including using pets as exercise partners.
  • Fit Kids – Find out how much activity kids need, get fitness suggestions for 5-12 year olds, learn about fitness equipment, personal trainers, and yoga for kids.
  • Fit Teens – Discover fitness games for teens, how to have a healthy body image, and how to manage stress through exercise.
  • Fit Under 5’s – Get fun activities to channel your preschooler’s boundless energy and form good nutrition and exercise habits early.
  • Fitness On the Go – Incorporate movement into holidays and vacations. Get the scoop on Sports and Weigh Loss Camps.
  • Home Fitness – Enjoy suggestions for active indoor play. Learn about exercise videos for kids and how to get fit playing computer games!
  • Nutrition & Health – Learn about foods that fuel active, growing bodies and improve health and fitness.
  • Sports – Read advice on all kinds of sports activities from cold weather sports to extreme sports to martial arts for kids and more!

The articles I read were well-written with a nice balance of facts, practical advice, and easy tips for incorporating health and fitness into your family’s daily lives.
