Encouraging your child to exercise

  • Exercise helps children develop healthy bones, muscles and joints
  • Helps to maintain a healthy body weight
  • Exercise helps children concentrate and sleep better
  • Exercise reduces anxiety for children and parents
  • Children of pre-school age who are capable of walking unaided should have the opportunity to be physically active for at least 3 hours a day (spread throughout the day)
