An increasing number of women may be donning their ladies fitness wear and accompanying their kids on a brisk walk to school over the coming weeks as the Department of Health has backed a campaign that aims to encourage families to get active.
The Department has given £800,000 of funding to the Living Streets group's Walk Once a Week scheme, which rewards children who walk to school with collectable badges.
Tony Armstrong, chief executive of Living Streets said that this incentive will encourage children and their parents to exercise more.
"We all know that child obesity is a really big problem, and walking to school is one of the easiest ways of getting in some exercise both for kids, and also for parents," he added.
Walking children to and from school is one way for adults to achieve some or all of their weekly quota of exercise.
The NHS recommends that adults exercise for 30 minutes, five days a week and this can comprise of brisk walks in ladies fitness wear.
