Can your kids run a daily mile?
With yesterday’s announcement of the sugar tax there’s little doubt that kids’ health is in the news but another story that’s breaking through is the introduction of the daily mile.
The inspiration for this comes from a school in Scotland where the head introduced a daily mile walk or run into the timetable.

It only takes 15 minutes out of the children’s school day and is credited with helping to improve their health.
