Healthier Generation

Affiliated with the American Heart Association, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is dedicated to promoting better health for children and closer cooperation among various parts of society towards this goal. The parents section contains copious amounts of information about eating right, sports, maintaining a healthy household, detailed data on popular foods and much more. You can also check out the other sections for tips on healthcare and health at schools.



Exercise TV

We just found out about this portal – it’s like YouTube but focused on toning up and feeling better! There’s a whole bevy of videos here covering many different types of workout and sports, and since we were just talking about yoga for the young ‘uns, they have an eight minute portion showing how it’s done. There are also a few others in here that you can explore while on the topic of kid yoga, plus you can set up a remote relationship with professional trainers who’ll help with your kid’s exercise on demand. 


active videos

Active Videos

Please note this is a commercial site, or in other words, they sell stuff for money! But we’ve heard good things about their DVD’s, which have just the ticket for parents keen on getting their children moving. Hip hop, tap dancing, ballet, jazz, home and classroom fitness, baseball…the list goes on and on. The videos are all well-produced and many feature licensed cartoon characters that kids can easily relate to. Although not cheap by any means, the fun and educational value of each one is considerable. 



That’s Fit

Another catch-all site that’s good to know and revisit time and again. That’s Fit has daily updates, forums, articles from doctors and trainers and an interesting, quirky perspective on the topic. Examples include a guide to pilates for young learners, the dangers of high heels, diet tips and a whole lot that will indubitably be of great assistance to a family bent on staying in shape!


how to play soccer

How to Play Soccer 

Couldn’t get much more literal than this, but still an excellent tome of a site for budding footie fans. From inspirational addresses by Beckham to fundamental rules and tricks to advanced plays, it’s all here, with videos, elaborate instructions and background information. There’s everything you ever wanted to know about the sport, including an explanation of various leagues and the frankly often confusing FIFA system. Come to think of it, as soccer fans ourselves we might just go back to reading now…



Kids Tennis Foundation 

Tennis is fast becoming a popular sport that’s no longer the domain of snooty country clubs and various “opens”. These days you’re as likely to find toddlers sidling up to the net, although of course there’s much to learn before serving up that perfect game. This is where the foundation comes in, striving to promote tennis as a healthy, educational activity among kids. Hailing from Australia, they have quite a few regional engagements, so it may be worth your while to give them a shout if your child is a tennis maven.

    Ifm impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog thatfs both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
