60-minutes a day for kids Being from New England I'm a big fan of the New England Patriots and watching them play football (American) every Sunday. Well, last Sunday when I was watching the game I noticed an ad by the NFL for their new website NFLrush.com.

It turns out that they are promoting exercise for kids. I thought this was a great way to use their influence to get kids to be more active. The NFL's theme is "Play 60" which encourages kids to go outside and run around and play for one hour a day.

Personally, I feel the only way we’re going to be able to break this cycle we're in of rising obesity rates is to really get the point across to kids about how important proper exercise and nutrition is. Children listen to their role models, so I hope every one of us who has some type of influence can lead by example and teach healthy lifestyle values to the next generation.
