Healthy Living Tip #279

Canada’s Guidelines for Increasing Physical Activity in Children recommends reducing inactive time by at least 30 minutes a day.

  • Help make children aware of how much time they spend being active and inactive.
  • Turn off the TV, computer and video games and encourage physical activity instead.
  • Suggest that children walk, run or bike places instead of taking a ride in the car or public transportation (when possible and safe).
