Physical activity for children and young people (5-18) years

Physical Activity for children and young people (5-18) years

The recommendations for children and young people aged 5-18 are at least 60 minutes per day of physical activity, plus muscle and bone strengthening activities three days per week.  I hope the infographic encourages health and early years professionals to speak to children and young people about why it’s important to be active.  The infographic highlights some of the benefits of physical activity, such as building confidence and skills, improving concentration and learning, and improving sleep, as well as being good fun and good for health.
