It's a Canadian study... I wonder how much input they get from the govt with advice about healthy eating / exercise / outside play etc? :D

What a load of absolute tosh!! I have minded 34 children over the last 22 years and not one of them have been obese, studies like that
can only come out of America,

my lot get just as much if not more excersise here than at home, we walk everywhere at the moment as my partner has my car for work but we would walk most places anyway or drive to a country park to go for a walk somwhere different, we walk to get the babys to sleep and walk the dog, at the moment its treasure hunt walks which the 4yrold loves and we go for a walk every day.
If I had my way I would be one of those forest schools only as a childminder cause I love the outdoors and so do the kids I have at the moment.
