Children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day to have the best health possible. The physical activity needs to include moderate activity (such as bike riding and brisk walking) with vigorous activity such as running and playing hockey.
This is not difficult to do, as even periods of 5-10 minutes of physical activity are helpful.
Parents play the most important role for ensuring their children are increasing their level of physical activity. There is much you can do to change your child’s behavior.
