These days, an increasing number of children spend most of their time indoors wired to technology. A lack of physical activity predisposes them to obesity-related health problems. Apart from being overweight, children develop weaker muscles and bones if they don’t exercise regularly, while chances of getting type-2 diabetes and high blood pressure increase as they grow older too.
Sudocrem has discovered that children are spending around 45 hours a week in front of a screen and only 4 hours playing in the great outdoors. They also found that a staggering 9 out of 10 children (89%) are unable to recognise a butterfly and 51% don’t know what a Bumblebee looks like. 1 in 3 didn't know bees make honey... Shocking stats!
I've linked up with Sudocrem to give away one of their fab Adventure Kits which has been specifically designed to encourage kits to get outside and play!
