Is Physical Education and Sports in Schools failing ? – 1 in 2 children do not have a healthy BMI

Sportz Village’s Annual Health Survey (AHS) was launched 10 years ago to understand the overall health and fitness levels of children in schools. The 10th AHS reveals that children are displaying poor fitness levels across India. The nationwide survey has covered 1,49,833 children in the age groups of 7 years to 17 years from 364 schools across 250 cities and towns. The survey reveals the poor state of health of children in Indian schools and the measures that need to be adopted to address this problem.
