Why Kids Should Jump for Play

Obesity is an epidemic across the nation and affecting all ages—including toddlers and school-age children. And one way to combat it is with fun—active, heart-healthy jumping fun that’s available every day at Hoot’s Ultimate Party Zone.

jumpingChildhood Obesity Statistics

The State of Obesity project indicates that 1 out of every 6 kids is obese. Obesity (defined by body mass index) puts kids at increased risk for a number of physical and mental health problems, including:

  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol—both of which increase risk for cardiovascular disease
  • Sleep apnea—a sleep disorder that has been linked with ADHD and other behavior and physical health problems
  • Bone and joint problems
  • Asthma
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Depression

Kids who are overweight are often the target of bullying, the scars of which can last a lifetime.

Kids’ Exercises Needs

Obesity is typically the result of both overconsumption and under-activity. Kids who entertain themselves with technology—i.e., video games, social media, etc.—do not get sufficient activity to challenge their cardio-respiratory systems, muscle development, balance or flexibility.

According to the Mayo Clinic, kids 6 years old and older need at least one hour of activity each day for optimal health.
