Keeping Children Fit

How to keep your children fit and healthy


We have been running a MOVE every morning since September.

We have discovered that in 12 minutes children cover on average 1,000 metres!

That's walking, skipping, imaginary swimming strokes...basically playing whilst moving!


A 12 minute walk with your children everyday will amount to 7,000 metres a week - equivalent to climbing Mount Everest!
