Summer is vastly approaching. Schools here in Louisiana have about a week left and then summer vacation begins!!! This week in the news, they were talking about the affects of too much texting. As I listened, I didn’t want to be believe it, but it was true. Kids today are so connected with technology, that going a day without texting, Facebook, or Twitter would kill some of them. Although we need technology and I’m appreciative of it, we have to get moving.
As always, the topic of childhood obesity came up as well in the news. Putting down the smartphones and tablets are what our kids are going to have to do in order to decrease the number of cases of childhood obesity. GFN. Jr. is encouraging everyone to get moving this summer. So make a game plan for your kids and for yourself to get moving this summer. Next week, I will bring to you a list of some of the best video games to get your kids off of the couch and off of their cell phones. It is time to get moving. As we all know, healthy eating is also important. It is easy to buy them snacks that are easy and quick to get, but pay attention to the labels.
Let’s get ready for summer and let’s get moving. Have a wonderful weekend gamers.
