KIDZ ON THE MOVE
How do South African kids shape up health-wise? Sadly the news was not so good in the 2010 Healthy Active Kids Report Card compiled by the Sports Science Institute of South Africa (SSISA) and Discovery Vitality. Firstly, only 42% of our youth participated in enough vigorous physical activity to promote health benefits. Secondly, the report showed that 20% of kids are overweight, with 5% of them actually being obese.
Comprehensive assessments will be done at the beginning and end of every term, enabling all to see improvements and the benefits of KIDZ ON THE MOVE!
SSISA will also be holding a kids’ holiday programme from 9 to 13 December 2013, 09:00-12:00, so if you are looking for some healthy, fun activity for them during the holiday season, our programme is just right!
