More exercise and healthy food in schools

I just don't think we set a good example through schools, and if children start off healthy they have a much better chance of staying healthy. How about star jumps or a lap of the playground every morning before lessons start - making activity an integral part of school day?

totally agree with this point - and also thought the Jamie Oliver campaign a few years did an awful lot to get us thinking about diet and what we feed our children, as school meals should set an example. I have found that foods my children won't eat at home seem OK when they've been introduced at school - my son tried a kiwi fruit at school because they were learning about exotic fruits and everyone else tried it, where as if I'd offered him that at home he wouldn't have.

And no driving kids to school.
Bad for the kids, bad for the planet.

How many of the Lambeth schools have bike racking facilities for the kids?
How many of them are on cycle routes?

Wouldn't that be an easy way of increasing excercise and reducing car traffic?
