(TELEGRAPH) — Parents blame technology for their children not walking, as a survey shows one in four young adults in the UK only walk when it is necessary.
A quarter of young adults aged between 18 and 24 only walk an average of five minutes a day, according to Bupa who surveyed 2,000 people.
Parents aged 42-54 years old blamed technology for keeping the young adults from walking and said they walked more than their children do when they were their age.

The top excuse given by young adults for not walking was “I don’t have anyone to walk with” suggesting they were still lonely in the age of social media.
