Queensland’s inactive children will cost health system in the future

Queensland ranks second lowest among States and Territories for the participation of children in organised physical activity (sport or dancing), according to new ABS data released today (see chart below). I am concerned about what this means for our future rate of obesity, which is already relatively high  (see Queensland leads Australia on obesity), and the ultimate cost to our health system.
