released a 13-point plan for

National Heart Foundation chief
executive Mary Barry said physical

Anthony Burton, of Ainslie, knows
how hard it can be to get children to do
enough physical activity, which is why
he and his wife walk with their
children along their routes to school

outlines 13 action areas, such as active
travel, children and young people,
prolonged sitting, older people and
disadvantaged populations, and is

6.4 million adults did not meet
physical activity guidelines.
He said the country s inactivity
crisis was everyone s business.
Mr Shilton said physical inactivity
was underrated as a risk factor for
chronic diseases such as heart disease,
type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
If physical activity came in the
form of a pill, we d all be taking it.
There is scarcely anything else which
can provide such comprehensive
health benefits, he said.
