Parents are role-models for kids – promoting healthy living helps kids embrace healthy choices, too. So, having a kid select some of these gift ideas could be meaningful and promote fitness/health for all.

Looking for simple and thoughtful gift ideas for Father’s Day while also promoting healthy living for all.
