Motor activity is important at any age! A study conducted in the UK has linked motor skills acquired in the first year of life with those present in the same individual aged 14. The study’s results showed that children who started walking early were, by the age of 14, in possession of better motor skills, tended to move around much more and participate in a greater number of sporting and scholastic activities, and did better in sport. Importantly, these results were achieved regardless of the child’s weight at age 14. So there is a relationship between the motor skills acquired at a very young age and a person’s future level of physical activity.
