The benefits of walking with children

Walking is a fantastic activity for you and your children.  It’s free, you can be spontaneous and it’s a great way to spend quality time together.

It’s never too early to start walking to school; it’s one of the easiest ways to be physically active.  Getting children walking from a young age is an investment for life, developing road awareness in time for independent walking as a teenager, and creating good habits for an active life as an adult.
