I just wanted to post on the website the video that we made in school during June. We had been learning about the importance of healthy eating, about going to bed on time and about how exercise can keep up fit.
Learning about these topics are great but we wanted to do something more constructive and maybe help other children learn and understand our message. We came up with the idea of the Super Duper Kidz Project.
Obesity is a massive problem in Ireland today. 60% of Irish adults are either overweight or obese. This is a massive issue and we must start making changes now to help turn the tide on this problem.
With this in mind, we decided to create a blueprint that all parents and children could follow. We decided to make simple changes and have challenges that the children could follow. They gave up fizzy drinks, they exercised for an hour a day and ate more fruit.
We encourage all parents and children to have a look at the video. Even if you only make one or two simple changes to your diet, sleep, exercise or mindset, you are succeeding.
We hope you enjoy!
