Are you ready to take up the Going Wild weekend Screen Free challenge?
Want to give you and your children a really healthy lifestyle?
Try the Going Wild screen-free diet!
It’s the only diet that’s active and fun, giving you and your family a chance to explore the natural world and recapture some of that lost magic.
You’ve heard of fat free, sugar free, wheat free, diary free, but what about screen-free? A perfectly balanced 5 : 2 screen free diet! During the weekend how about getting away from the screen and having a go at one of our fun outdoor activities?
Getting outside into the fresh air, making time to think and work things out, judge risk, getting a good dose of natural immunity and re-connecting with the natural world – all of these have been shown to promote health and happiness. .
Every Friday we will post a blog with a fun family activity to try at the weekend, a simple mini adventure to do wherever you live. It will make the most of the weather and the season and will take as long as you wish; there’s nothing to stop you staying out for hours if you’re having fun!
Tweet a picture of your challenge so we can see how you got on, or try out your own ideas to make the challenge even better. Make sure you use #screenfree, at the end of your tweet for a chance to win a signed Going Wild book full of loads more adventures and challenges!

It’s wonderful to get outside and do things. Much better than just sitting playing computer games. Cool!
