BURRILLVILLE – With the colder weather and winter season arriving soon, it’s a good point for little kids to try and stay healthy by remaining active and drinking milk daily. Milk gives kids strong teeth and bones. Exercising daily helps keep kids to be healthier and happier every day as well. Kids spend a lot of time sitting at desks during the school day and way too much time playing video games, texting and talking on their cell phones, lounging while watching television and participating on the internet.
Over the coming weeks, we will be featuring a variety of Itty Bitty Super Dupers Healthy Habits coloring cartoons for the kids, and helpful articles for teenagers and adults related to eating and drinking foods that are healthier, exercising and remaining active during the indoor season.
