Lifestyles have changed dramatically over the last 20-30 years and only now are we discovering the impact that this has had on the nations health. Nowhere is this more evident than in the health and activity levels of our children, with childhood obesity levels rising and fitness and activity levels falling. The habits and lifestyles learnt during childhood carry through into adult life. For this reason there are a number of government initiatives to help schools. They published The Childhood Obesity Plan last August that recommends 1 hour of moderate-to-vigorous activity every day for children, 30 minutes during school time and 30 minutes outside of school. The PE and Sports premium funding is already in place and this is due to be supplemented with the Healthy Pupil Capital Programme funded by the sugar tax levy.
Fresh Air Fitness are committed to supporting these initiatives and are proud to be working with UK Active in helping schools achieve their targets and building a healthier nation.Back to all blog posts
