Daily Fitness Tip: Oct. 22

Looking for a way to make crunches for kids AND teach them about nutrition?  Sandwich sit-ups do the trick! Start in a standard sit-up position, lying on your back, knees bent, feet on the ground.  Reach arms up by you ears and pretend to get your "whole grain bread out of the cabinet".  Sit up and put it on your plate.  Reach back (lay back down) and get your turkey out of the refrigerator.  Sit back up, put it on your sandwich.  Continue, adding other healthy components like tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, maybe some onions, or avocado?  On your last sit-up, pretend to eat your sandwich!  You could also add healthy sides like carrot sticks or yogurt and a class of milk to drink for a healthy exercise lesson all in one! #makingkidsfitnessfun
