Less sitting, more activity. For all. For life.

Returning after lockdown with Active Recovery

This is a challenging time for children returning to school or nursery with physical issues of inactivity and weight gain along with the emotional ones of entering a COVID world and new school environment. Teachers are trying to make up for lost academic time and embed a new curriculum. Parents need reassurance as to the wisdom of returning their children to education. Active Movement’s Active Recovery initiative is a new evolution that is designed to aid recovery and help protect against the disease too through supporting activity, nutrition, hygiene, distancing and immunisation.
