One You Hounslow is supporting Public Health England’s Change4Life 10 Minute Shake Ups campaign with Disney and Sport England to help get the nation’s children active.
The 10 Minute Shake Ups from Change4Life with Disney are back this summer for families to take part in together. New Shake Ups will be released each week over the summer holidays with games, featuring characters from Disney Pixar’s latest animation Cars 3, as well as Disney’s Moana, Frozen Fever, Zootropolis, Beauty and the Beast and The Lodge. New for this year, the 10 Minute Shake Ups will focus on core skills such as running, jumping, throwing, catching and balance and can be completed throughout the day. The 10 Minute Shake Ups with Disney also aim to inspire longer term activity among children, promoting healthy habits all year round.
Councillor Kamaljit Kaur, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Adult Social Care, Health Services, Hounslow Council, said: “We’re delighted to be part of an exciting project like this.
“The summer holidays can seem really long but there are lots of great ideas to get children up and about with the new 10 Minute Shake Ups.
“Lots of children love Disney characters and I am sure this will help motivate and encourage them to take part in some form of exercise over the holidays with much enthusiasm.”
Dr Talac Mahmud, a local GP in Hounslow is also in support of the campaign.
“Families can create a healthy routine that works around their busy working and school lives, with habits that will benefit them all. As a local GP, I cannot stress the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle enough and along with my CCG colleagues, fully support this campaign.”
Every 10 minute burst of exercise can make a real difference in helping children reach the 60 minutes they need each day. Visit http://po.st/10MSU_Hounslow to find lots of exciting Disney inspired 10 Minute Shake Up games and make this a non-stop summer of fun and activity!
