With more than 1 in 5 children between 5 & 16 years considered to be obese; 'Childhood Obesity' is a very real problem in Australia. It has brought about parental phenomenons like 'lunchbox shaming' and 'fat shaming.' It strikes fear into the heart of parents around the country and has us questioning whether we're doing enough towards promoting a healthy, active lifestyle for our children. Everyone wants to do something about it but kids sports activities are so damn EXPENSIVE right!? Well, finally the NSW government is putting their money where their mouth is.
From Jan 31st 2018, all school aged kids in NSW are eligible to apply for a $100 voucher to use on physical activities this year. There are a few parameters however, here's an excerpt from the Active Kids website:
