If we are to believe statistics, the future health of our children is not looking promising unless we address the problem of diet and fitness now! According to official figures since the 1980s the number of children and teenagers who are overweight has increased dramatically. These increases are thought to be due to a variety of cultural factors, including easier access to high-calorie foods, decreased exercise and increased interest in sedentary activities. But education can play a major role in teaching children about diet, healthy living and exercise from an early age so we should lead by example.
The exercise benefits range from positive thinking, less stress, higher personal esteem and reduced absenteeism due to poor health. Therefore, having good fitness facilities with cardio and strength training equipment enables exercise to introduced into the curriculum. It can also be used to generate revenue for the school if used outside of school hours and for the benefit of the local community.
