    wristband sports day educationKids today have more and more reasons to stay indoors, so it is not surprising that a quarter of our kids aged 5-17 are overweight or even obese.

    Sports days are a great way to get kids engaged and active. Kids are a little too young to worry about the benefits of being active, they just know that once they are outside it’s fun.
