ATLANTA, Ga. - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says only about 25 percent of U.S. children aged 12 to 15 are getting the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise every day.

 

The 2012 federal government study found more boys get physical activity than girls and nearly half of U.S. boys reported playing basketball.

 

 

Information for the study came from in-home interviews, physical examinations and surveys.
