With childhood obesity on the rise, being active as a family is so important. After all, kids learn by example. Making physical activity a routine part of everyday life is sure to teach kids how to grow into active, healthy adults.
One way to get kids excited about exercising is by turning it into a game where real rewards can be earned. Kids seem to love anything electronic and digital, so why not merge their tech-love with physical activity using the ibitz?
