Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront

A 1980s Solution to Childhood Obesity

From: Health Habits

 

Back in the 1980s, when I was a kid, me and the other kids in the neighborhood used to spend hours on the street beside my house playing road hockey.

During the week, we would get home from school, do our homework and then race outside and play until someone’s Mom started freaking out about getting ready for bed. On weekends, we would be running up and down that street for as long as we could see that crappy old tennis ball.

And while none of us made it to the NHL, none of us looked like this either…

"...scientists have found that “boys and girls who take part in physical activity with their best friends in the neighbourhood where they live have higher levels of physical activity...” - Do you really need scientists to come up with that?
