Amanda’s Top Tips For Fighting Childhood Obesity

Last week, Ofcom published a report showing alarming statistics regarding the time pre-schoolers and school aged children spend online. These are truly frightening statistics showing that time spend on tablets and online  is ever increasing.

 

tabletSome of the findings are staggering:

  • Three- and four-year-olds are online for an average of 71 minutes per day, or eight hours, 18 minutes a week – an hour and a half more than a year ago.
  • The research found that a third of pre-school age children own their own media device, such as a tablet or games console.

We, at Amanda’s Action Club do everything we can to get children active from a very young age. Our tops tips for fighting childhood obesity have been published in The Mirror this week.

World Heart Day – 29th September 2016

whd_web_bann_6dae673865

Today we are marking World Heart Day!

The numbers….

  • Globally over 17.3 million deaths are caused by cardiovascular disease
    (CVD) each year. I am sure we all agree that this is truly staggering.
  • Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer; most heart
    disease deaths are caused by a heart attack.
  • Coronary heart disease kills more than twice as many women as breast
    cancer.

Physical inactivity can contribute to heart disease as it can lead future health problems. World Heart Day highlights how we can take control of our heart health by getting more active. The World Health Organization recommends that children aged 5-17 years of age should aim for at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity a day.

Our top tips for good heart health:

  • Be active with your children by walking or cycling to school together.
  • Walking to school instead of getting in the car. Even doing the
    housework is a great way to keep the heart pumping.
  • Go to the park to run or visit the playground.
  • Take the stairs rather than the lift.
  • Get an activity app on your phone and monitor how many paces you
    are walking or download an exercise you like doing.Put the radio on and dance around the living room. Why not we do it all the time – inside or outside, we’re doing mini workouts!

Fun heart facts

  • Your heart is one of the most important organs in the human body.
  • On average did you know your heart beats 100,000 times every day!
  • Your heart has the mighty job of keeping blood flowing through the 60,000 miles of blood vessels that feed your organs and tissues.
  • Your heart sends 2,000 gallons of blood surging through your body.

We want you all to look after yourselves! It’s never to late to start to make a change in your lifestyle.

THE LOST BOYS

With the publication today of a Save The Children Report about boys, it has been found that a quarter of boys are falling behind by the time they start in reception, their first year at primary school.

It is so important for teachers to make learning fun for children. Boys also need more physical activity and outdoor play to expel their energy – this in turn can help their concentration.

Learning must be about having fun and in the reception year, play is a crucial component of this. For example, children enjoy using their imagination and role play their favourite super heroes. Play will help with speech development and communication.

At Amanda’s Action Club, we continue to engage boys and girls as early as possible. With us, they learn to listen, play and do lots of physical activity to help their development in readiness for school.

National Childhood Obesity Week – fighting obesity here and now!

The numbers….

• Almost 3 in 4 adults will be obese by 2035 – a frightening statistic to think that the children of today are very likely to be very overweight as adults.

• Over the next 20 years an additional 670,000 people will get some form of cancer because of being overweight and/or obese.

• A 2014 survey of children aged 2-15 showed that 14% were classified as overweight and an additional 17% were obese.

• Obesity reduces life expectancy by an average of three years, or eight to ten years in the case of severe obesity (BMI over 40).

These statistics are very disturbing. We must try and help stop some of these predictions coming true. We have to act now!

A for Active!

We must keep our children active – we can do very simple things to make this happen:

• Walk to school
• Ride a bike
• Kick a ball in the park
• Run around in the fresh air
• Go to the playground
• Take part in a sport at school and in free time
• Dance around the living room

Our children can have better lifestyles if we make some small changes. This means, getting more active and eating more healthily. Keeping energetic and eating a balanced diet will be an effective combination in keeping us in good health.

At Amanda’s Action Club, we love being active from the moment we wake up!
We help you and your little ones as young as 4 months to jiggle and get excited about moving their arms and legs to music, song and laughter.

It is essential that we continue to support our children and young people in getting fitter outdoors and indoors – we can all do it! Simple things are a great start and this can take place even in the confines of our own living rooms. So here’s how you can start, dance around to Amanda’s Warm Up Song:

 

Let’s help the next generation keep fit and stay healthy!

Here at Amanda’s Action Club, we love to see daddies come to our classes. It can be such a fun and bonding experience to take your baby or toddler to our classes.

A fathers’ involvement in his child’s life is important – from very early on around the time of birth through to engaging in their development and education.

Numerous studies show that positive involvement of fathers can lead to enhanced educational attainment, improved behaviour, better well-being and better child relationships. So you can see, their involvement is incredibly important. We hope to see many more daddies come and have fun with us!
