Experts agree that physical activity is critical to a child’s development. And while it’s recommended that kids get at least an hour of exercise each day, this minimum is difficult to reach when schools are cutting back on physical education.

Enter the Dannon Rally for Recess initiative, which encourages parents and schools to “rally” their communities for the chance to win a $30,000 playground makeover. To participate, collect Danimals and Dan-o-nino package codes and enter them online at rallyforrecess.com now through Dec. 31.

Five schools will be selected for a playground makeover, and three individuals will win Playtime at Home packages worth $1,000 each.

To learn more about the contest, visit rallyforrecess.com.

 

Keep Kids Active

Joanna Dolgoff, M.D., a Long-Island based pediatrician who specializes in childhood obesity, supports the Rally for Recess initiative and stresses the importance of keeping kids active from an early age for long-term health benefits. See expert advice from Dr. Dolgoff on:

- Increasing your child's active time outside of school
- Making exercise more fun for a non-athletic child
- Setting reasonable limits on your child's diet
