Making the Mile pdf icon PDF 252 KB

To consider a report which summarises the Making the Mile initiative being supported by the Public Health Team to support greater physical activity in schools.

Minutes:

The Board considered a report on the Making the Mile initiative.

 

The Government’s Obesity Guidance - Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action (Jan 2017) and A Plan for Action Chapter 2 (June 2018) recommended initiatives that encouraged children to walk or run a mile every day in school.  In Cheshire East, the Public Health Team supported a Make the Mile initiative.

 

The Make the Mile has been promoted in all Cheshire East Primary Schools with a target that all schools increase levels of physical activity of children.  A total of 54 schools had implemented a scheme.

 

There was limited evidence to suggest that the initiative would reduce obesity levels in children on its own.  However, if developed as a whole system approach to tackling obesity including healthy eating, physical activity and environment, future benefits would be realised.

 

The Board discussed the benefits of this initiative and felt that it should be encouraged as it helped with mental health wellbeing and should be linked with other initiatives which promoted healthy eating.  Reference was made to an American study which noted that low physical fitness killed more people than did either smoking, diabetes or obesity.

 

It was agreed that a further report would be brought to the Board which set out what was already being done and what could be done to support and encourage healthy weight in children and adults in Cheshire East.

 

RESOLVED:  That the Board

 

1          promote and support the Making the Mile initiative, which encourages schools to facilitate sessions for school children to run/walk/jog a mile every day; and

 

2          to consider further taking specific actions to support efforts to encourage, support and facilitate healthy weight in children and adults across Cheshire East.

Minutes:

The Board received a verbal report on the Health and Care Partnership Plan.

 

It was reported that the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership had to submit to NHS England by next week a one year operational plan.  A five year plan was in the early stages of development, which would be subject to pubic and partnership engagement.  This would be informed by the nine Place five year plans.  The Cheshire East Plan would be drafted over the next couple of months.

 

RESOLVED:

 

That the verbal report be received.
