A recent study has concluded that our children are entering a “tragic decline” from the age of just seven, with activity levels dropping long before they leave primary school.
The study tracking 500 children over eight years showed a sharp drop in activity levels between the ages of seven and nine with a decline continuing into adolescence.
Previous research indicated that the fall in activity levels among children happens in adolescence but this new study has called this into questions and put a greater importance on teaching our children to be active right from the moment they can walk and encouraging continued activity throughout school years.
