The lack of physical activity is a combination of poor dietary, sedentary behaviors, busy parents, limited space at home, little to no physical education at school. Making awareness about how importance to teach the kids to get exercise in early age will help to avoid health issues (such as obesity or diabetes) when they grow up.
