Just like to thank Brynhyfryd Infant school today, the 6 and 7 year old gave 200% to my introduction to healthy lifestyles, and i feel proud of the fact that i managed to hold their attention for an hour or so!
It’s critical to have a positive early start in fitness, and these kids have shown great promise in the quest to lead an active life. Having done work in schools over the years, i always get a good feeling if even 50% take something in like we did today, and inspire perhaps their parents to get active again, and make those shopping lists a bit more healthy.
Most people don’t know that you can develop fat cells until you reach around 20 years old, so the healthier you are, the less fat cells you develop. That’s why you see overweight people struggle with their weight for the rest of their lives after they get to 20, because they have far more fat cells than the individual who has taken more care of himself.
Obesity in children has never been worse, and there a number of strategies to help combat it. Anyone who knows my work will know i have heavily researched this area, and have a lengthy programme in place to help children. This will be published on here shortly.
Have a good weekend and check in tomorrow if you can!
