If the state and people are truly serious about getting our children healthier, then reintroduce physical education into the schools for an hour a day from elementary through high school. It has been shown in countless studies that 30 minutes of activity every day can lead to improved health. The only exceptions should be kids with physical problems that preclude them from engaging in this activity.
Editor's note: The Legislature several years ago expanded physical education in schools but not to a full hour a day and not through high school.
