take me outside!

Take a moment to consider this: According to the 2013 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card, Canadian youth spend nearly 8 hours a day in front of a screen. The Suzuki foundation points out that 70% of our kids also spend less than an hour outside each day.

Meanwhile our kids are more obese and suffering from Asthma and Diabetes in record levels. Is there a link here? I suspect there is.  There is never a “one source” solution but the line from here to there seems to cross all of these points so what can we do?
