Kids, "Active Commuting" and Long-Term Fitness with Robin DeWeese, Ph.D Parent Footprint with Dr. Dan

    • Kids & Family

Dr. Dan talks to Robin DeWeese, Ph.D. of Arizona State University about her recently released, timely, and important study about kids, fitness, health, and “active commuting."  The main finding:  Kids who walk, skateboard or ride their bikes to school when they are young are more likely to keep it up as they get older, reaping the health benefits. In the study, the researchers found that kids are much more likely to continue "active commuting" (traveling by foot, bike or even skateboard) if they are taught to do it when they are young. 

This episode gives parents a great plan to start “active commuting” with their children – and sets them on their way to long term health as adults.  A great discussion about healthy fitness habits that parents and families can easily embrace with young children.

Robin DeWeese, Ph.D. is a Lecturer in the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University and a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.. She earned a PhD from Arizona State University. Her research focuses on the impact food and physical activity environments have on children’s health. She has been part of the research team for the New Jersey Child Health Study for the past ten years, studying changes to the built environment over time
