Help my child get active

Exercise in childhood is good for strength, co-ordination, fitness and maintaining a healthy weight. Research has also found it can help children with their mood, sleep, behaviour, performance at school and self-confidence.

There are lots of ways to help you and your family get active:

At nursery or other childcare settings

Look out for childcare settings with Leicestershire Healthy Tots accreditation.

The scheme supports nurseries and other childcare providers to promote healthy lifestyles and ensure physical activity is an integral part of every child’s day.
