Tips to get active with children

Kids should enjoy 60 minutes of activity on top of their school day.

While kids are active at school, most of the time they are actually sitting down and can be happy just to chat to their friends in the playground instead of running around.

Physical activity doesn't have to be sport, or an organised activity. Lots of play activities can involved children being active, encourage your child to play outside regularly.

It can be more fun if you make activity something the whole family can do together, and kids are more likely to join in if they see Mum or Dad doing it too.
