100 Family Adventures
100 Family Adventures
Paperback      ISBN: 0711236615
Childhood obesity is increasing year on year. One of the reasons for this is inactivity. Children spend less time outside and more time in front of screens (computers, phones, games, television). Happiness and well-being levels in children are on the decline too. Physical activity causes the release of ‘feel good' endorphins into the body. 100 Family Adventures provides parents with a valuable resource bank of tried and tested outdoor activities for them to enjoy with their children, wherever they live. Particularly inspiring for people who want to get started, but don't know how, the book will help all family members foster a positive mindset that sees challenges as opportunities to rise to; and family time outdoors as great fun and highly rewarding.
