Family Time & Moving More


Children learn from their parents and love to copy and follow what they do. If your child is active in early life, they are more likely to keep this up as an adult. 

Spending time together as a family and seeing your child grow and develop, whilst having fun is a great way to build and strengthen your relationship. Getting out and playing actively together can improve moods and make you all feel good.

     

  • Being active together as a family
    • Reduce screen time for the whole family
    • Encourage children to go outside and play – with family or friends
    • Join a local sporting club e.g. running, cycling, netball, football, rugby, swimming etc.
    • Look for free activities in your local area such as park runs, treasure trails, nature trails, the park, and the woods
    • Walk to the park, shops, or school
    • Make sure children are not in buggies, car seats, bouncing chairs for long periods of time
    • Cycle rides with the whole family
    • Dance to music.

  • Why do we need to be active?
    Being active daily can improve our health in lots of different ways:

    • Our hearts will work better
    • Being active helps to manage our weight
    • Our bones will be stronger and healthier
    • We feel better about ourselves
    • As we grow older we can move more easily.

  • Visit the Change4Life website for ideas on getting active and healthy eating.
