It is never too early to establish healthy habits.
Little Feet walking challenge is a great way to encourage families with young children to commit to healthy travel throughout childhood - and hopefully for life!
Get little ones walking this October during International Walk to School Month with Living Streets’ Little Feet walking challenge packs. The set of fun and engaging activities cover two Early Years themes:
People Who Help Us and Minibeasts
Starting in October, each theme consists of a two-four week burst of activity and can be run back to back.
Little Feet’s journey maps, stickers and educational games are designed to reward families for their walking journey and walking successes (cycling and scooting count too!) instilling healthy habits for life.

Walking all or part of the journey to or from pre-school is an easy and effective way to help families meet daily activity level recommendations. If we can encourage more children to enjoy the benefits of walking from a young age, unhealthy weight levels in primary school children should drop.
Little Feet also provides families with the opportunity to spend quality time together and it is the perfect chance for parent/carers to teach their child road safety skills and how too look after the environment.

Supports the EYFS framework and Ofsted descriptors
The successful delivery of Little Feet relies on a shared responsibility between early years setting and parent/carers. Children will learn about the benefits of being healthy more easily if they hear the same messages from their teacher and at home, so to get the most out of Little Feet it is essential to get parents/carers on board.
