Children need to play and move their bodies every day – it’s their job. Children have boundless energy and encouraging activities that move their body will help put that energy to good use. It also can help develop a lifelong enjoyment of physical activity, as evidence suggests that physical activity habits learned early in life may track into adolescence and adulthood. How much physical activity should your child get each day? It depends on their age. Here is a good general framework below.
Long summer days and warm nights make it the perfect time of year to find new ways to build enjoyable physical activity routines for everyone. Time spent outdoors has been found to be a strong predictor of children’s physical activity. So get outside, move your bodies together as a family, and then go reward yourselves by cheering on this summer’s incredible athletes!
Be well and all my best,
