According the Centers for Disease Control, kids need a minimum of 60 minutes of exercise per day. But given the popularity of iPads, Xboxes, smartphones, and other devices, not as many kids today are getting the workouts they need to remain healthy.
Add to that a diet rich in sugars, carbohydrates, and fats, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. There has been a dramatic increase in the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes among children, and it’s no surprise. Kids today aren’t active and are eating worse than previous generations.
Bounce Houses to the Rescue
It’s practically impossible for any child to resist the temptation of a bounce house or other inflatable. Once they see the bounce house rental being inflated, they will put down their electronic devices and gravitate toward the fun yet active entertainment the bounce house provides.
Playing in a bounce house rental provides the cardiovascular activity kids need to develop healthy hearts and lungs. Plus, the bouncing on the soft surfaces of the bounce house develops muscles and helps promote strong healthy bones.
When Exercise Is Fun
If you’re having a hard time convincing your children to go outside and play, why wait until a special event such as a birthday party or church picnic for them to actually want to exercise.
Rent a bounce house anytime to encourage your kids to play, have fun, and develop healthy habits. Bounce houses can even help children develop the social skills they will need later in life.
When it comes to making an investment in the future of your child’s health, consider renting a bounce castle, obstacle course, slide or another inflatable.
