PHYSICAL ACTIVITY BY U.S. KIDS TAKES A DIVE

The just-completed 2017 PHIT America ‘Inactivity Pandemic’ Reports (IP.PHITAmerica.org) reveal some deep concerns about physical inactivity in the U.S. While ‘casual’ participation is up for many sports activities and adult inactivity trends may be flattening, the trends for children are quite alarming. Children who are active in aerobic activities have declined more in the past year than any in recent times. And, the six-year physical activity trend is very negative. Combine this with a severe drop in youth team sports ‘play occasions’ and it’s clear that billions of U.S. children are not physically active.
