Stephen: New study suggests kids around the world don’t get enough exercise
According to a new report published by the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance, children aren’t getting enough exercise in 75 percent of the world’s countries. “Global trends, including excessive screen time, are contributing to a generation of inactive children and putting them on a dangerous path,” Mark Tremblay, president of the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance, said in a statement. According to the World Health Organization, kids between the ages of 6 and 17 should get at least an hour of exercise per day. On the bright side, Japan, Slovenia and Zimbabwe boast the most active children around the globe.
