Children from less affluent families are less likely to participate in physical activity than their wealthier peers.
New figures from Sport England have revealed that 42% of children in poorer households are active for an average of 60 minutes plus a day.
However, they also show that 54% of children and young people from families of high affluence are active for this amount of time.
Children from less affluent families are also least likely to enjoy being active, according to Sport England.
Around 43% of children from low affluence families say they enjoy being active, whereas this figure increases to 59% for children from wealthier families.
Boys from the least affluent families are more likely to be active than girls, according to the study.
