Combine Healthy Eating week and Bike to School week to kickstart your habit
This year both Bike to School week and Healthy Eating week fall on 27th September- 1st October so why not embrace both and feel the massive difference in your, your children’s and the environment’s health.
For Bike to School week, there is no registration for schools. However, if you pledge your commitment to the cause through https://www.sustrans.org.uk/campaigns/bike-to-school-week-pledge#pledgeform you will be in with a chance of winning a child’s Frog Bike worth up to £400. You will also be sent a free guide to walking, cycling and scooting. So, why should you commit to walking, biking to scooting? Firstly, it’s great boost to children’s (and adults!) physical and mental health and wellbeing. Secondly, your child will arrive at school more relaxed, alert and ready to start their day. You will also be contributing to a reduction in congestion and pollution around the school gates as well as teaching your child to be more aware of road safety and to feel more independent.
If you’ve decided to embrace a healthy exercise habit, surely it makes sense to combine it with some new, healthy eating habits? If you need some inspiration, why not try some of these health trends?
Making small changes often has the biggest impact on your health and wellbeing. Why not commit to walking or biking to school once a week to begin with and choosing foods that are less processed?
