Active Healthy Kids Canada Releases 2010 Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth

TORONTO, April 27 /CNW/ - The following video is available by satellite or by CNW's Broadcast On-Demand web download:

STORY SUMMARY: If you think of curious, busy preschoolers as "active," you may want to think again.

According to the 2010 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, Canadian kids five and younger are dangerously physically inactive. Healthy habits must start young, as lifestyle patterns set in the early years predict obesity and health outcomes in later childhood, and even through adulthood.

The Report Card was released today by Active Healthy Kids Canada and its strategic partners, ParticipACTION and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Research Institute - Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group (HALO).
