Statistics show that childhood obesity has more than doubled in the last 30 years. As a parent, that is very scary knowing the complications related to obesity. I am sure there are many factors contributing to this statistic but I would assume it is because as a society we are much less active and have a very high calorie based diet. The market is flooded with children’s food that is heavily processed, modified, and high in fat! TV’S, computers, laptops, tablets, and electronics have brought children in from the yard and onto the couch. Hours of Red Rover in the yard with neighbors, has turned into hours spent in Minecraft. I feel that it is my job 100% to ensure my children grow up active and healthy.
Luckily, electronics has begun a new swing in their right direction when it comes to getting children active. Instead of banning electronics in our home, we opt to choose video games that are movement based and chose toys that encourage an active lifestyle on top of spending most of our days outdoors. The NEW LeapBand is such a great option for children, as it gets children educated, outdoors, and active! This month we had the opportunity to host a #FitMadeFun party with our friends to encourage our kids to stay active and healthy!
The NEW LeapFrog LeapBand is a wearable activity tracker that encourages children to be active with the help of adorable digital pet pals! LeapBand keeps tracks as the children complete activities and motions, and rewards them with points towards things for their pets and new levels! They have many virtual pets to choose from and with the power of activity they can feed, wash, and play with their pet! PLUS: When feeding their pets, kids are taught healthy eating habits!
The water resistant LeapBand features rechargeable batteries(THANK GOD!), audio instructions for pre-readers and parental controls!! It fits perfectly on her arm!
The audio controls are the best part, as the LeapFrog LeapBand is geared for ages 4-7 (lots of non-readers there)! The kids all got super excited to follow commands with their virtual pets!
“LEAP LIKE A FROG!”
The kids ran, jumped, and spun like little crazy people should. They broke a sweat in the name of fun!! Look at their busy little stunt moves!
My daughter who is normally a very quiet, shy, and super girly child was eager to please her pet! She followed all the commands and had a blast! She asks everyday if she can play with her “Pearly” Pet~ and I can track her online to see what times she is the most active with her LeapBand! While she does try to play at night, the parental controls LOCK the band, so play only happens when Mom says it’s okay! During non-play hours, the band just shows a regular watch on the screen(great for my 6 yr old that is learning to tell time)! During playtime though…….she is running like a dog!
I love to see them laughing and playing the way children should be. Our #Fitmadefun party was great~ the kids played hard and then enjoyed some delicious CLIF JR Bars! After learning healthy habits on their new LeapFrog LeapBand’s, the kids were quick to listen to the nutrients loaded in the CLIF bars!
CLIF Kids bars are a step in the right direction towards healthy little ones. They are packed with organic ingredients including protein, whole grains, and nutrients and have left out all the garbage fillers! It was a great way to fuel the kids, so they could play hard!
We had a great day celebrating being fit and active! The new LeapFrog LeapBand will make a great Christmas gift this year, and is available at mass retailers everywhere and on Amazon for $39.99. The LeapBands are available in green, blue, and pink!
