All of this talk about carbs and dieting and exercising have made me really think about how this applies to kids and the messages we send to our kids about eating well to nourish our strong bodies, about exercising and about body image itself. So as part of the Just Dance, Just Sweat ,Dream Team Challenge, I created this video that shares my feelings about all of this….
I really am so glad that my kids and I are taking this challenge. Just Dance is a really fun way to get our bodies moving together as a family, and do it in a natural game-playing kind of way. I don’t know if this is what Ubisoft had in mind when they created these games, or if they were picturing kids and teens playing mainly with their friends…. but dancing together as a family is so much better than just telling kids they should exercise and signing them up for sports. It demonstrates that moving your body is important at every age.
