This question was asked by OurHealth reader, Angele W. We really have to think about this one. It seems like there could be pros and cons on both sides. What do you think?
From Angele W. -
Wow, while shopping online I ran across this and was shocked. I immediately thought, is it wrong to have children exercise on adult like equipment? I mean shouldn't they be getting their exercise from fun interactive activities, not a treadmill, which they also sold on this site, or any stationary exercise machine?
Considering that we proselytize about changing the habits of our community and living a healthy lifestyle, do you think these types of toys/equipment are a good idea, or at this age is it too much?
