Welcome to the home of Activ8, a unique, fun, educational and fully inclusive health programme for children.
Activ8 has been designed purely with the aim of helping schools and parents combat a growing national and worldwide problem - childhood obesity.
Childhood obesity is one of the most serious global public health challenges of the 21st century, affecting every country in the world. In just 40 years the number of school-age children and adolescents with obesity has risen more than 10-fold, from 11 million to 124 million (2016 estimates).
“The rise in severe obesity and widening health inequalities highlight why bold measures are needed to tackle this threat to our pupil’s health. These trends are extremely worrying and have been decades in the making - reversing them will not happen overnight.” - Dr Alison Tedstone, Chief Nutritionist at PHE.
