A healthy body is the key to a healthy mind; we all are acquaint to this. Many physicians suggest that a minimum of 60 minutes of physical activity must be carried out by children to have a fit body and avoid falling prey to the chances of having any cardio-vascular diseases as they grow. This calls for a keen requirement of spreading awareness in children about the importance of carrying out regular physical activity. And what better physical activity can there be than a nice sport session on ground, in open, with fresh air.
