Get Outside to Enjoy Ontario This Winter

December 26, 2012

Ontario Government Encouraging Kids to Stay Active

It's cold outside in Ontario, but that's no reason to stay indoors.
As the temperature drops and with shorter winter days, it can be tempting to stay indoors. However, it is important for everyone - especially kids - to exercise and stay healthy year round. There are lots of fun ways to be physically active during the winter with friends and family, such as:
  • Building a snowman
For days when the temperature drops too low for outdoor activities, kids can have fun exercising indoors. Community centres across Ontario offer activities for children and youth such as swimming, basketball, indoor soccer, martial arts and dance.
Ontario has an ambitious goal of reducing childhood obesity by 20 per cent over five years. Achieving this goal will help our kids become healthy adults and is an important part of the McGuinty government's Action Plan for Health Care.
