Ten minutes to change your life

The Change4Life campaign aims to help children reach the minimum 60 minutes of physical activity they need every day through 10 minute bursts of activity, inspired by Disney characters.

New this summer, the 10 Minute Shake Up campaign allows kids to join one of four Disney teams, including Frozen, Big Hero 6, Monsters and Toy Story. There are lots of new and exciting 10 minute games and activities for children to play to try and help their team win by doing as many Shake Ups as they can.

Hertfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health, Localism and Libraries, Teresa Heritage, said: “The benefits of regular physical activity on the health and wellbeing of our children cannot be underestimated. Sometimes it can be hard to find time to fit in the right amount of activity on a daily basis, but breaking this down into manageable 10 minute chunks is a really useful way to boost activity levels to keep children happy and healthy! “
