Childhood obesity threatens the future health of Canada, and the problem needs to be addressed NOW if we are to prevent a generation of children from growing up with chronic health problems.
We also know that being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned fundamental movement and sport skills as a child.
