Abstract

Activity and physical education are an ideal space to promote good practices that lead to improving the physical and emotional health of children, among other benefits, this together with good eating practices constitute crucial indicators for the correct development of life, which It must have its beginnings as early as possible. The study of the role of children's circles, teachers, their interaction with children, among other factors such as parents, families and social environment, is essential to optimize the educational teaching process. For this reason, the objective is to analyze the benefits of physical activity on the health of children as well as providing a varied and healthy diet, and especially the challenges that this implies for parents, teachers and the environment that surrounds them. A bibliographical review was developed from recent works on the subject, in order to determine key aspects. The benefits of physical activity and adequate nutrition for children at an early age and up to 5 years were determined; as well as the premises and functions of physical education. Physical activity together with adequate nutrition constitute a fundamental axis for the psychomotor development of children.
