Besides being healthy for children, there are also many benefits for parents to increasing activity- in case parents need a bit more motivation to join their kids in getting active.

These benefits apply equally to child care providers.  When you live a healthy lifestyle as a provider, you not only model healthy behaviors for children, but you reap the benefits and rewards of good health!
