The Ten Minute Shake Up is a campaign by Change4Life

As the schools have broken up for the summer, Public Health England have launched their annual campaign to get young people moving and keep fit.

The Ten Minute Shake Up is a campaign by Change4Life in conjunction with Disney, which aims to get children to reach their recommended 60 minutes of physical exercise per day, broken down into manageable 10 minute bursts.

There is a tendency that outside of school term and without regular PE lessons, some young people can let their physical exercise slide. Indeed even inside term time, only 1 in 5 children aged 5-10 currently meets the recommended target 60 minutes of daily activity, with almost 40% of children in this age group doing less than 30 minutes per day

To sign up, simply search Change4Life online and register for your free pack, support emails and access to the Shake Up Zone - which is full of ideas for games and activities to keep your kids active this summer. The free 10 Minute Shake Up pack contents include a stopwatch for timing 10 minutes of activity, a wall chart and stickers for monitoring activity, Disney Character activity cards, personalised emails and SMS support, as well as exclusive access to an online portal, the Shake Up Zone full of games and activity suggestions for kids to play.
