Expatriate health insurance customers who are concerned about their children's health might want to discuss exercise with their doctors.
The recommended amount of exercise for children is one hour a day and new research has suggested that less active children might be putting their health at risk.
A recent study that monitored children in Sweden found that those who were less physically active were more likely to have an increased risk of heart problems in later life.
The team looked at 223 eight to 11-year-olds and found that even accounting for blood pressure, resting heart rate and body fat, the children who were less active had a higher composite risk score for heart and circulatory disease.
Natasha Stewart, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, commented: "Heart and circulatory disease is something that affects adults, not children, so it's difficult to predict the risk of a child developing this later in life."
