Top tips for keeping kids active
A balanced and varied diet is key to helping your child stay healthy and full of energy
Activity is vital for strengthening muscles and bones. Why not try a family activity that’s fun for all ages such as cycling? Children over 5 years should aim for 60 minutes of activity every day. Children aged 1-4 years should aim for 180 mins a day.1,2
Reduce screen time
According to WHO, children should sit less and play more3. They advise reducing screen time and using quiet moments to engage in offline activities together such as reading, storytelling, singing and puzzles.
Walk to school
A brisk walk helps to build stamina and keep your heart healthy4. Why not leave the car at home and walk your kids to school instead? It’s a great way to stay active together.
Join a club
if your child loves a particular activity such as dancing or swimming, find out if there is a club they can join. It’s a great way for mums and kids to socialise and make new friends.
