Get the kids active over summer with new campaign

Published on: Thursday, 02-July-2015

Knowsley Public Health is backing a national campaign to get kids more active over the school summer holidays.

The 10 Minute Shake Up campaign uses popular Disney characters alongside Change4Life animations to get children doing more 10 minute bursts of exercise, to help them reach the recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity they need each day.

The campaign brings families lots of fun, free Disney inspired activities and games to get children doing 10 minute bursts of activity throughout the day, every day.

Cllr Eddie Connor, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said:
“The council is committed to encouraging active and healthy lifestyles. Anyone with a family knows it can be difficult to find ways to keep the children active and entertained during the summer holidays so the campaign is brilliant, providing fun, free games and activities that children can do in just 10 minutes.”
