Anyone over the age of thirty will know, often through painful experience, that your body will begin encouraging you to slow down from here on in. Some try to resist the call of time, choosing to take up (or continue participating in) regular exercise to try and keep the extra weight away and put a bit more life in their heart and lungs. Others decide that the effort is not worth the reward and simply go with the flow of the ageing process. Whatever the action an individual decides to pursue, few would argue against good diet and regular exercise being a benefit to general health, from middle age onwards.

Children are great at living in the moment. They have a natural curiosity about the world they live in. They are discovering the world in the moment. There is no past or present links with things. They don’t already have pre-formed judgements of things and place things in metaphorical boxes.

Helping children to adopt positive early attitudes towards physical activity are vital and embedding this from an early age really does matter. The case for promoting and encouraging a lifestyle that includes physical activity is unquestionable, and as a nation, the steady decline of an active lifestyle in our young people is inexcusable.

Ensuring Early Years children are tucked up at a reasonable time can be tricky – but it’s well worth the effort. A recent study carried out by the Ohio State University College of Public Health discovered that pre-schoolers that are consistently in bed by 8pm are less likely to become obese teenagers than those who drop off later in the evening; indeed, bedtimes post 9pm seem to double the risk of obesity.

Is there too much emphasis placed in the wrong areas when it comes to PE in schools, especially Early Years? I want to make, what I believe, is a very important point. In Early Years, we know children can take a while to get changed. Let’s say on average it takes up to 10 minutes for children to get changed at the start and end of a lesson, therefore 20 minutes in total. If they then have two PE lessons a week, then that’s 40 minutes a week, across 39 weeks of the year, adds up to 1560 minutes. Therefore, 1560 minutes is the equivalent to thirty-five, 45 minute lessons of getting changed! Which is astonishing and quite shocking.
