Spring break perfect time to help get kids moving
With spring break approaching, it may be a good time to break your children away from their screens and get moving.
Dr. Gina Robinson, a pediatrician with Cleveland Clinic, says a body in motion tends to want to stay in motion.
It’s recommended to try new things to encourage imagination and creativity, like going for a hike.
"Feeling the sun just makes you feel better. Vitamin D we all know is important, and having sunlight helps us to produce our own natural Vitamin D supply," said Robinson. "I always feel better when I’m getting some fresh air. I think it makes you feel energized. It makes you feel alive. It makes you feel motivated."
It’s recommended children over the age of 2 should only have two hours of screen time per day.
