Physical activity outside of school is vital for child health

Physical activity outside of school is vital for child health, and could play a vital role in helping children meet government recommendations, according to new research funded in Bristol.

The researchers found that children who do activity outside of school in addition to during school hours are much more likely to meet the Government’s physical activity guidelines. The results, published in BMJ Open, suggest that current efforts to increase exercise during the school day won’t be enough for children to meet the recommended one hour of physical activity a day, set by the Chief Medical Officer.
