Today’s Children the Least Active Generation in History
A recent report by UKActive ‘Generative Inactive’, has found that only half of 7 year olds are meeting the recommend physical activity guidelines of 60 minutes a day, remaining inactive for 6.4 hours or more.
It highlights the responsibility of schools in improving the overall health of children, who have been described as the first generation in existence to have shorter life expectancy than that of their parents. The report believes that his worrying statement can be reversed if head teachers are to adopt a whole day approach to physical activity, not just limited to PE lessons.
