Build Your Child’s Best Day Every Day!
In order for children aged 5 to 17 years old to live their best days, they need a combination of high physical activity, low sedentary behaviour, and uninterrupted sleep to be healthy, EVERY DAY. Participaction provides the following guidelines for Canadian children to reach their optimum health;
SWEAT! A child’s best day wouldn’t be complete without at least 60 minutes of heart-pumping physical activity.
STEP! Several hours of light physical activity, especially outdoors, will help build a best day.
SIT! Try not to spend more than 2 hours a day on a screen or sitting for long periods. Get out and be active!
SLEEP! End a best day with a night of uninterrupted sleep. AGES 5-13: need 9-11 HRS, AGES 14-17: need 8-10 HRS
