The best form of active exercise for children is free play. All adults are supposed to get a lunch time break - recommendation 1 hr - with 2 15 min breaks morning and afternoon.
I agree wholeheartedly that children need to exercise & be physically active to develop their brains and learning but please tell me in between all this directed activity children get some time to do what they want?
