“Children who train too hard at one sport only may face a physical or mental burn-out. Kids’ muscles, joints and bones benefit from versatile motion, and exploring many different sports can be motivating and fun, too. According to recent papers, kids shouldn’t focus on single sport too early – in most sports, late adolescence is often the ideal time for specialization.“

“If parents want their kids to grow up healthy, they should show example, teach them active habits and find ways to be outdoors together with their kids. Take the stairs, not the lift. Instead of driving , you can walk or cycle to school and work. Take a hike to the shopping mall or to the park – just as long as you get out of the door and have fun together!“

“The WHO recommendations for children and youth are just minimums. When babies learn to walk, they become little power plants that just keep moving. This healthy habit is lost at school, where kids are taught to sit still. And coming to puberty, the lesson is learnt: many really don’t move at all anymore. We can all act to change this.”
