Childhood Obesity Crisis Could be Overcome -
Thanks to Teacher of the Year's Groundbreaking Daily Mile Exercise Plan

Primary head Elaine Wyllie devised the Daily Mile scheme, where pupils run or walk a mile every day, and virtually eliminated obesity at her school

Britain is in the grip of a childhood obesity crisis, with more than a third overweight by the time they leave primary school, according to latest NHS figures.

..

But in one primary school in Stirling, a head teacher has launched an extraordinary fightback, with a brilliantly simple idea that has transformed the lives of her pupils.

..

After hearing that children were exhausted by just the warm-up before their weekly PE lesson at St Ninians Primary, Teacher of the Year Elaine Wyllie decided to take action, starting with a fitness test.

..

Elaine, 59, took one class out to the field, and asked them to run around the path that borders it. Many could only manage one lap.

..

But Elaine was not put off, and decided to trial her new Daily Mile exercise regime for a month.

..

By the end of February 2012, the children were transformed, she says.

..

Realising its potential, Elaine was quick to include the entire school and nursery. Every child now takes part for 15 minutes a day on top of their usual PE classes.

..

The children dont have to run the mile, they can run and walk although most run.

..

They are energised and focused and not one out of 57 children in Primary One is overweight. The school nurse came running in and said this has never been seen before when they were measured and weighed, she says.

..

Elaine says the Daily Mile has been sustained because the children love it and so do their parents.
