Owning a Doughboy Pool is a great way to keep your children healthy and fit! Childhood obesity is on the rise and approximately 9 million children over 6 years of age living in the United States are considered obese. The increase in the number of obese children is the result of children eating more calories than they are using though daily physical activity.
We believe this number has increased due to competition for children’s leisure time. In years past, children spent much of their time outdoors riding bicycles and playing with neighborhood friends. In recent years, outdoor activities have been replaced with watching television and playing computer and video games. This means in order to keep our children healthy, we must get them moving!
Swimming is a fun form of exercise and the benefits swimming offers for a lifetime are worth taking the time to purchase a pool.
