In brief: Other than a tan ??
Inside & sedentary kids are more likely to pack on the pounds & see their schoolwork suffer because of all the tv time/computer games & tendency to snack.
The outside kids develop smoother coordination at an earlier age, more natural vitamin d & better social skills through their team interaction. Interesting choice of lifestyles.
