Obesity is one of the biggest problems in Britain and it affects not just the adults but kids as well. Based on a report by the charity ‘Living Streets’, one-third of children are obese when they move to secondary school, making them prone to possible life threatening conditions when they reach 30 to 40 years old.
The national charity’s research confirmed that this problem can be easily addressed by simply letting children walk to school instead of driving them in a car.
‘Living Streets’’ Chief Executive, Tony Armstrong, said:“Walking to school regularly is a fantastic way to help children reach the recommended daily 60 minutes of physical activity.
“It’s also a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your children and enjoy the benefit of a short blast of fresh air in the morning.”
Mr. Armstrong claims there is“overwhelming”evidence of “health benefits” to be had from walking.
It is for this reason, that ‘Living Streets’ is declaring September as Walk to School Month which aims to help children and their parents form a healthy habit in a bid for better health.
