Arizona kids ranked more physically fit

physical activity

Arizona’s kids are doing better than their peers nationally when it comes to physical activity, according to a nationwide report card.

The 2018 U.S. Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth graded school-age children on nine different indicators, with kids nationwide earning no better than a “C” in any category. Arizona scored slightly better than the national average in six of the nine indicators.

The report comes amid a push to get more physical activity for children, with a new law this year requiring schools provide two recess periods for children from kindergarten to fifth grade.
