NewsINACTIVE KIDS AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Tuesday, Nov. 22nd, 2016Studies show Canadian kids are among the least active in the world. Healthy Kids Community Project Manager Breanna Plourde says what Healthy Kids does is develop programs based off of community’s specific needs. She says in Northern Ontario since we have longer winters some people may use that as a barrier. Plourde says in a hockey game a third of the time kids are being inactive. Studies show only nine percent of Canadian children are getting enough physical activity and Plourde says the colder weather provides more opportunities to get out and be active by skiing, snow-shoeing, shoveling snow or even building a snow man.
