Physical Activity

Why be active?

Kids love to be active. Making physical activity a part of their daily routine is not only fun, but also healthy. Physical activity is important for healthy growth and development. It is also a great way for kids to make friends and learn physical and social skills.

 
Encouraging kids to be active when they are young also establishes a routine that could stay with them throughout their life. If you are a parent or carer of a young child, the two points to remember are:

  • Children need at least 60 minutes (and up to several hours) of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day.
  • Children should not spend more than two hours a day using electronic media for entertainment
    (e.g. computer games, TV, Internet), particularly during daylight hours.
