The nanny-in-chief is to issue guidance to all those Mums and Dads who don't know the bleedin' obvious:
The health guidance will be issued this week by Professor Dame Sally Davies, chief medical officer for England, and her counterparts across the country, the Sunday Times reported.
She said: “For children that are not yet walking, there is considerable evidence that letting children crawl, play or roll around on the floor is essential during early years.
"Play that allows under-fives to move about is critical and three hours a day is essential."
You really couldn't make this up could you? Millions spent on telling parents that kids should play - while at the same time bashing them with dire warnings about safety. Doubtless the play inspectors will follow!
