Keeping active has so many benefits. Here are just a few:
- Helps healthy growth teaching emotional wellbeing skills including teamwork
- Supports us to maintain good mental health, boosting mood and self-confidence.
- Supports maintaining a healthy weight
- Reduces the risks of suffering from long term illnesses in adulthood
It is essential that children learn about the benefits of physical activity and understand how to be physically active so that they can carry this knowledge with them as they grow up. Being physically active from a young age can help influence activity levels as an adult, so let's give them the right start.
