Children are becoming less and less active these days… and we believe it’s down to factors such as TV, Video games and Social Media which are all distracting our kids and causing them to live a more sedentary lifestyle.
One of the brand-new fitness programmes that has been created in the UK is the “Daily Mile Programme”, which encourages children to get active more regularly, since studies have now shown that walking or running a mile a day could massively improve your health. Whether it’s getting children to take part on days they don’t have P.E. or introducing the idea to schools that don’t have before or after school club privileges, we think that this could be the future of schools keeping fit!
Around 1200 schools in the UK have taken up this initiative and already thousands of children have felt happier and healthier as a result because after all, exercise is proven to improve children’s physical and mental well-being.
But will it be made compulsory in schools?
There have not been any plans to make it compulsory as of yet. However, if us parents work together we can make this a possibility for our kids in the future.
At The Bugs Group one of our main goals is to improve children’s health, but in a fun and engaging way. Our DanceBugs, FootieBugs, YogaBugs and MultiBugs classes all have one thing in common, they get kids back into exercise by providing them with positive and enjoyable physical activities. We have already seen a massive improvement across all the schools we work with which is why we fully support the ‘daily mile campaign’.
