Innovation in combatting children’s inactivity and obesity

Conference | Active Movement | November 27,2015 

A behavioural perspective and practical solutions.

The statistics about children’s well-being make uncomfortable reading.

The long-term future for our children’s health is concerning government, local authorities and educational bodies alike, but the measures to counteract over-eating and under-activity still comprise of diet and exercise regimes that few follow.

At the same time there is increasing evidence that long-term well-being is affected not simply by low levels of fitness. Our increasing sedentary behaviour is now a definitive health risk for all ages.

To counter this, it is time to consider a new approach that instills activity into children’s everyday routine  – not for fitness today but as a behavioural norm that will protect them tomorrow.

 

Innovation in inactivity and obesity, sponsored by Active Movement, is a conference dedicated to defining this new approach. Speakers such Dr William Bird, Linda Baston-Pitt and Dr Mike Loosemore will be revealing new thinking and practical solutions in the field of education, nutrition and behaviour covering the early years of children’s development.
