Exercise for the Entire Family

You should aim for: 
30 minutes a day or 60 minutes 3-4 times a week

For busy families try to incorporate a 30 minute family bike ride after dinner or a brisk walk 15 min away and back. Even if it pushes bedtime back (scary, I know!), BUT exercise is shown to help kids sleep sounder and fall asleep faster.
