Tips for Kids

Francine, Arthur and Buster play basketball.

Exercise! It helps your body become strong and remain healthy. When you exercise, your blood flow increases, which helps your heart and lungs work more efficiently. It also increases the amount of oxygen that goes to your brain and the rest of your body. Exercise can help you think better, feel more relaxed, and live a longer, healthier life.
