Ottawa Citizen: “Kids are now heavier, rounder and weaker.”

health benefits of being outdoors

Active outside = health benefits

“Kids are now heavier, rounder and weaker,” says Wayne Scanlon (Ottawa Citizen) in an article recently.

The article compares 12 year olds in 1981 and 2007 and suggests children from a generation ago were healthier in many ways because they were more active outside.

Chelsea Forest School doesn’t need anyone telling them that! The school-age program offers a one day a week program suitable for 5-10 year olds who are home schooled or those who wish to combine Forest School programming with a traditional school environment.
