Aussie kids' fitness at an all-time low
Australian children are not doing enough physical activity to ensure their long-term health.
On the day that kids around the country return to school, a group of national health experts have urged for concerted action to ensure all Australian children have a healthier, more active start to life.
Active Travel: pathways to a healthy future proposes a national approach for all levels of government to enable children to be more physically active on their daily trips to school through better local environments adjacent to schools and greater support for parents, teachers and local communities.
