Why get active?

Regular physical activity is an important part of getting healthy and staying healthy.

Encouraging kids and teens to be active from a young age sets good habits early on and helps them develop the skills they need to stay active throughout their lives.

Children who don’t get enough physical activity are at a greater risk of becoming overweight or obese. This makes it harder for them to be active and keep up in sport or play.

Being overweight can also make kids more prone to conditions such as asthma, flat feet and joint sprains. In the long term, it can contribute to conditions such as high blood pressure and cholesterol, heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes and liver disease.

Research tells us that the warning signs for these conditions can be present in overweight teenagers as young as 15 years of age.

How much activity?

Kids and teens should get at least 40 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. They can get even more health benefits from doing a couple of hours of physical activity every day.

To help kids and teens be active every day, they need opportunities for sport, play and exercise at school, after school and on weekends.

Physical activity doesn’t all have to happen at the one time. It can be accumulated throughout the day; by walking or riding to and from school, being involved in activities at school, active play at home or taking part in organised sport after school and on weekends. 

Kids and teens can get even more benefits from doing up to three hours of physcial activity every day.

Kids and teens should do strenghtening activities at least three days of the week.  Strengthening activities, such as climbing, jumping, running or playing tug-o-war, help to build muscle and strong bones.
