The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice about how parents can help their young ones get moving:
- Take time each day to play active games, such as peek-a-boo.
- On a clean floor, let baby play and stretch out, exploring his or her surroundings.
- Join a playgroup for babies of your child's age.
- Choose activities for your baby that encourage lots of movement of the hands, arms, legs and feet.
