With the number of overweight and obese young people increasing, we’ll continue to offer support through our Active Kids scheme for children of all abilities. As well as getting as many kids as possible enjoying physical activities, we’re encouraging them to eat well and think about ‘calories in, calories out’.

“We’ll encourage kids to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle.”
