Keynote Topics:

The importance of starting P.E. and fitness in children beginning with preschool. Lots of statistics on how large corporations are already influencing young children to be inactive, eat poorly and develop unhealthy lifestyle habits. People need to be motivated to start the process of teaching nutrition and physical skills/activity to children as young as age 2 to prevent diseases now being seen in childhood. By the time children are in the elementary grades it's much harder and critical times for learning skills may have passed.
