So what can parents do? Here's what the AAOS recommends:
- Keep kids active for at least 35 minutes per day.
- Be a role model. Don't expect your child to exercise while you're camped in front of the television.
- Include exercise in the entire family's daily routine. Promote active chores, such as raking leaves, painting or walking the dog.
- Limit video games to those that require kids to dance, hop, "play a sport" or move in some way.
