Written by: Bontle Ndlovu

Winter school holidays have just kicked off and it’s very important to try keep your children as active as possible over the next 3 weeks.

One might ask, how is that possible when it’s cold and windy outside?

In the health feature, Kinderkineticist at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa Caylee Cook chats about the benefits of joining a holiday club during winter break.

Cook says that parents and kids tend to think that during winter, they need to curl up in front of the fire with their kids, blankets and screens but that's not the case. There lots of ways to keep kids active during winter holidays she adds.

One way to do this is to ensure that you sign your kid up for a holiday club says Cook.

The Kinderkineticist adds that holiday clubs are a great way for kids to have access to interpersonal relationships, and play games that promote physical activity.

It’s a great opportunity to interact with other kids and stay active during the holidays.
