"Designing Healthy Communities: Raising Healthy Kids"

 

It's my personal belief, based on observations of my own and those in my neighborhood, that kids don't get outside to play enough, and certainly not as much as when I was a kid back in the late 50s and early 60s.

 

This week (Apr 3-9) happens to be National Public Health Week: "Designing Healthy Communities: Raising Healthy Kids":

One of the recommendations of NPHW is that communities consider adding more bike paths and playgrounds as they design their outdoor spaces:

This sounds like an initiative that is worthy of support from both Scouters and parents (even tho BSA is not listed as a partner).
