Shake up your summer with Change4Life

Children in Herefordshire are being encouraged to get active this summer with the new Change4Life and Disney 10 Minute Shake Up campaign.

10 Minute Shake Up has lots of new and exciting ten minute games and activities for children to play as part of four Disney teams: Big Hero 6, Frozen, Monsters and Toy Story. By picking their favourite team and completing as many Shake Up activities as they can throughout the summer children can help their chosen Disney team win.

Rod Thomson, director of public health, said: “Moderate physical activity is beneficial for a child’s physical, social and mental wellbeing and every ten minute burst of activity counts towards the 60 minutes they need each day.

“The summer holidays are long and can sometimes be a real struggle for parents trying to keep their children entertained. This campaign aims to shake things up by providing lots of activities, game ideas and inspiration to get up, get active and have fun this summer.”

To sign up, visit www.nhs.uk/10-minute-shake-up and register to receive a free Disney inspired 10 Minute Shake Up pack, which includes a fantastic team wristband with timer (while stocks last), activity cards, a wild card for children to invent their own Shake Ups, a team poster and stickers. The campaign also provides regular online content to keep children inspired and moving over the summer.
