According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), children should get 60 minutes of exercise every day, and outdoor playtime during this season can be more beneficial as winters provide new challenges for children to overcome, both physically and cognitively.
Research states that outdoor exercise during the cold season strengthens the immune system by allowing your child an escape from indoor germs and bacteria and helps form a resistance to allergies. Muscles are used more and this helps with motor development. Also, an increase in physical activity helps promote a better sleep cycle which leads to children growing stronger and maintaining a healthy body weight. Sun exposure is an important source of vitamin D, especially for children, since very few foods contain it naturally. The amount of sunlight children are exposed to and the amount of vitamin D they absorb can have a large impact on their mood.
