Do you have active kids? And a chance to win £200 worth of Sainsbury’s vouchers [closed]

I do. My son never stops; if he’s not competing in a match, he’s practising his shots (usually under my feet while I’m trying to cook dinner).

Sure I moan about the amount of kit I have to wash, the constant trail of mud which runs through my house and the fact that all I seem to do is ferry him from one fixture to another, but, BUT, I really wouldn’t have it any other way.
Rugby, hockey, cricket – I watch as many matches as I can, I cheer him on, I say encouraging words when he loses, I ask questions, learn the rules, walk the walk.

Active kids are healthy kids. I personally think they are happy kids too. And research has hinted that active kids could also perform better at school.

Of course being active doesn’t have to mean being sporty or any great expense for that matter.
The best thing we ever did was introduce a dog to this home, because it makes us go out as a family in all weathers. We climb hills, the kids climb trees, we tramp through muddy puddles, the kids jump in them 😉
And then we come home, cold and exhausted and energised and feel like we’ve achieved something.

For 10 years Sainsbury’s has being encouraging everyone to get their kids active – to inspire them to eat well, move more and live better.
We’ve collected the Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers for years, giving them to school, Scouts, our local rugby club so they can exchange them for a range of equipment, and experiences.
My kids are hugely inspired by the likes of footballer Daniel Sturridge, swimmer Ellie Simmonds and runner Jonnie Peacock, the campaign’s current ambassadors.

This week will be a particularly active and tiring one for my 12 year old. Two lots of cricket practise, cross-country,  a Scout hike, hockey match, two rugby matches.
I put him to bed last night after his night-time Scout hike; he was quiet and his legs ached and I could tell he just wanted to go to sleep.
“You’ve got a busy week ahead Dan,” I say “make sure you look after yourself. Don’t overdo it.”
He smiles and replies: “I love it mum. I really love it. I’ll be fine.”
It doesn’t get much better than that!
