The summer break can also be the perfect time for families to pick up healthy habits and make a Change4Life.
As a nation we know we're eating too much and moving too little - but did you know that unless we make a change, 9 out of 10 kids will grow up with dangerous amounts of fat in their bodies and a higher risk of serious diseases?
Deciding to change is one thing - but how do you get the whole family involved?
Well, one step is to visit our fun bus which will be visiting four locations nationwide this August - there will be activities, prizes, dancing - loads to do for all the family!
Simply roll your mouse over the map below to see where and when to visit us.
And if you're not on the route this time, why not get your funwheel for more suggestions? There are still loads of easy and free things to do to get active - play catch in the garden, run in the park, dance round the living room... just spin the wheel and get inspired!
Don't worry if the fun bus isn't visiting your area this time, you can still request your own fun wheel to bring your household alive with loads of exciting free fun for all the family to enjoy.
1) Simply pop the three discs out of the sheets of card. There are different things to do on both sides - from outdoor games, indoor fun to afternoon outings and even taking to the stage!
2) Position the disc so that the side you want to play is facing upwards. Put the disc onto the board by slotting it between the pointer and the base.
3) Now you're ready! You can play with your family, by yourself, or with a few friends.
4) Decide who's going first. Flick the pointer to make it go round. When it stops, it will be pointing at two activities, which you can then choose between.
5) Get going and have some fun!
NOTE: When you're doing these activities, please make sure you're in a safe environment and, when necessary, with Mum or Dad or your carer.
If you haven't got yours yet, order online at www.nhs.uk/change4life or pick one up from one of the Mirror / Change4Life fun bus events near you or from your local Asda store.
For even more family fun, there's also a chance to win a fantastic Eurocamp holiday, just check out the back of your fun wheel for entry details!
