Studies show that active kids are better learners because physical activity helps improve memory, behavior, concentration, and academic achievement.
On the other hand, inactivity can lead to losing focus and memory, and can impact kids’ physical, social, emotional, and mental well-being.
If you’re finding it challenging to keep kids active during this stay-at-home period, you might want to check out this 6-minute instructional video on the MILO YouTube channel.
MILO Champions Alyssa Valdez and Japoy Lizardo demonstrate four circuit exercises to develop kids’ speed, agility, strength, and power.
MILO, in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd) and under the MILO Home Court campaign, created MILO Champion Habit—a nationwide online P.E. at Home movement that encourages and guides children to build better habits and stay holistically healthy.
MILO Champion Habit was developed under the guidance of University of the Philippines – College of Human Kinetics (UP CHK). Revin Santos, an Assistant Professor of UP CHK and Exercise Physiologist, helped ensure that the drills were age-appropriate, safe, and can be properly executed in terms of form and technique for kids ages 7 to 13 to follow on their own.
Support your MILO Champion Habit by pairing with the new MILO Champion Formula that contains more milk, PROTOMALT, iron, and B-vitamins. Stay up-to-date with all other MILO Home Court activities by checking out the MILO Philippines Facebook page and website.
