Last week I took a brilliant and diverse group of energetic 8-11 year olds to the Acorn Holiday Centre based in beautiful Wales.

Over the last few weeks I've started doing some fitness training again - it's been a month or two since I've done any because when things got busy with launching Vitality TV I let it slip a bit - so I needed to get back into it.

We're a health website so we can't talk about eating burgers right? I mean, how could they be healthy? Well it depends on the burger and how often we eat it.

Watch this video by Surinder to see why it's important to enjoy the food that you eat.
