Anyone who has watched their kids at a playground or park will know that most are naturally active and love nothing more than running around and playing. However, most of us don’t actually realise the importance of kids swinging from the monkey bars and running around playing.

Encouraging kids to be active is an incredibly important part of your child’s development and can help them to establish healthy patterns that will last into adulthood.

No one knows more about inspiring families to do this than Magnus Scheving, the creator and star of the children's television show LazyTown (new series launching on 6th April on Cartoonio), which aims to inspire children (and their families) to lead healthier lives by making the concepts fun and accessible.

Scheving, who plays Sportacus in the show, is a father and two-times European Champion of aerobics, has even teamed up with the First Lady, Michelle Obama, to inspire kids to get moving at an early age and have fun doing it, which will help them build good habits to last a lifetime.

If you want advice on how to get your kids active and help to install healthy patterns into your little ones’ lives, then log onto our live and interactive webTV show with Magnus Scheving where he tells you how to make sure your kids don’t end up in LazyTown!
