Looking to raise a child's grades? Try exercise, study says

A new study links exercise to higher grades in school.

An international study found that children who exercise tend to do better in school, Reuters reported Wednesday.

Researchers, who published their findings in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, are quoted as saying that schools and families at home should prioritize both academics and exercise.

"Maybe it's an activity break, stand up every half an hour in class and do something," researcher Amika Singh told the news service.
