Getting kids on the go: Being active for health

Being active is good for all of us and this is especially true for children under 5. It has been proven to support brain development, enhance bone health and muscular development as well as benefit social and cognitive skill development and emotional wellbeing. The current government guidelines recommend that children under 5 who can walk should be active for at least three hours per day and minimise the time they spend sitting to achieve these benefits.
