Encouraging play

Encouraging play – at parks, play spaces and sports – can be a winning strategy for promoting healthy weight among kids. (…) Children who don’t have opportunities for active play are twice as likely to grow up to be obese adults and earn less at work, have higher health care costs, and take more sick days. (…) We’ve seen that sport can be a strong complement to traditional psychotherapy when helping young people heal from trauma.
