Physical activity, in any shape or form, plays a major part in the way your child takes control of their diabetes. So get them up and at it.
Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It can help to improve blood glucose, as well as improve fitness, prevent excess weight gain, keep the heart healthy and lower blood pressure. Children and young people should do at least an hour of moderate physical activity a day, eg brisk walking, active play, dance, sports, and active games.
