Children in Scotland are the least active in the UK, the first major assessment of global health for young people has found.
Young Scots were scored an ‘F’ on league tables ranking physical activity and screen-based leisure time.
Most Scottish boys spend more than four hours a day watching television and playing computer games. England scored an overall ‘D+’ for overall physical activity.
Fifteen countries submitted data to the Global Matrix of children’s physical activity, including Australia, Canada, Colombia, England, Finland, Ghana, Ireland, Kenya, Mexico, Mozambique, New Zealand, Nigeria, Scotland, South Africa, and the United States.
