Physical activity and nutrition tips for healthy kids

“20% of German children are overweight and don’t exercise enough. Let’s do something about that.” Ingo Froböse & Peter Großmann

Too fat? Too thin? Posture problems due to too much time spent on the computer? Are four football training sessions a week too much for children? If kids go vegan or just eat pasta, will they not be protein or mineral deficient? Such questions are the cause of uncertainty and conflict in many families, especially given the unprecedented number of food and health trends that have emerged over the last few years. Health and physical activity experts Ingo Froböse and Peter Großmann allay parents’ concerns by providing clear facts and easily applicable advice. The authors present essential, scientifically proven expertise on the nutrition and physical activity needs of children at each stage of their development from kindergarten to puberty. The final part of the book contains many suggestions for easy and fun ways for families to stay fit and healthy.
