Children under age 6 need regular physical activity for normal growth and development. Infants, toddlers and preschoolers should be involved in active play for short bursts throughout the day. These activities should be appropriate for their ages and stages of development, should be fun and should be varied. Physical activity is one of the most important parts of your family's health. Children and teens, ages 6-17 , should do 60 minutes or more of physical activity every day and adults need at least 30 minutes a day. Be active and your kids will, too! The LSU AgCenter offers free classes and educational materials about how to be more physically active and how to make more healthful choices in your diet. For more information or to schedule a nutrition program for your group, contact Diane Uzzle, Area Nutrition Agent, LSU AgCenter, 318-263-7400 or email
