Active children are healthy, happy, school ready and better sleepers.

Babies, Toddlers and Young Children (under 5s)

Aim for at least 180 minutes per day. The more the better! This should be spread throughout the day, including playing outdoors.

The 180 minutes can include light activity such as standing up, moving around, rolling and playing, as well as more energetic activity like skipping, hopping, running and jumping.

For children aged 3-4 the 180 minutes should include 60 minutes of energetic physical activity.

Children & Young People (aged 5-18 years)

Children aged 5-18 should do at least one hour of energetic activity every day. This might include running, skipping, swimming or cycling.
